    get names of local towns, create an inner page for each town with titles like "Education service in town A", "Education service in town B" etc. Create 500 words of high quality relavent content on each page, create backlinks to each inner page rather than root page.....

    Something like that maybe

    Create high quality content for each page of your site, create high quality backlinks for these pages, share interesting and knowledgeable posts on social media sites.

    First off figure out if you have any local keywords to even target. Just because a business is a local business doesn't mean that the keyword they are targeting are local keywords.

    If your site is a child care site that offers babysitting, it is in the local set. If by child care you mean a general child health information site, ranking for child care as a local term will do you no good, because you are not a child care provider.

    Education fals into this category too. Tutoring and homeschooling are local searches, general educations sites are not necessarily so.

    Do the keyword research and see where the traffic is, if you are not going to be targeting local search terms, don't kill yourself with trying for the local algo, go for the organic.

    I think if you spend around an hour on some local seo posts on BHW, you will get a lot of idea.
