    for the purpose of this question, let's pretend my target keyword is "cosmetic dentist San Diego"

    I have a page on my site www.sandiego-dental.com/cosmetic-dentist
    I wanted to rank this page for "cosmetic dentist san diego"

    This inner page was #7 for "cosmetic dentist San Diego". I am not sure where it was for pure "cosmetic dentist" without san diego.

    so during a period of like a week, I commented on like 4 high PR, low OBL blogs every day. For a total of about 30 links. Anchor text was generic like "here" "this website"....unfortunately, page moved from #7 to #16
    Then I stopped, because I thought maybe blog comments are toxic now?
    today i noticed "costmetic dentist" without san diego is sitting at #1
    but san diego is still #16

    What do you think is going on? Isn't the pure keyword without san diego harder to rank? why is it higher? or maybe it's not harder to rank? as far as I am concerned, the pure keyword is worthless, I havent seen any increase in traffic.

    how can I rank that page for "cosmetic dentist san diego" instead of "cosmetic dentist"?

    Read the post and could not stop my self to leave a reply on this one.

    The page has now higher number of links pointing towards it with the keyword "cosmetic dentist San Diego".
    Solution is to bring its anchor text diversity near to 10% or lower. Try targeting long tail keywords which include this phrase too "cosmetic dentist San Diego".

    Cheers

    It's so hard to rank for local keywords if it's not a real business since most listing are Yelp and Trip Advisor if there's a small chance that Google Maps doesn't take up the first few spots.

    Even then, blog comments isn't the way to go man. You need links from hard to get sources like news sites or PBNs.

    Blog commenting is a good to go thing unless the links are placed on Actual PR pages with good P/A and D/A, there are pages which have 50+ P/A and D/A near to 70. Don't every miss that link.

    Looks like you are getting personalized results or Google is automatically using your current location. Be sure to turn off personalized results if doing manual serp tracking.

    What Pringles said, Google does their own cloaking.

    What anchors did you use?

    You should use something generic like John @website-name
