Default Names on cities.

It depends upon the preference and the quantity of places you are targeting. If the scope is vast then it will be better to have separate dedicated pages.

Find area related keywords and use them in your meta tag description and try to target area related keywords on your websites

For example, let's say I own a doggy daycare in Kansas City (one of my real clients). Kansas City, like most big cities, is made up of lots of towns/cities. Since my realistic "market" is limited to a certain geographic area, I might focus my SEO efforts on a few cities. Keyword research would then tell me that "doggy daycare Overland Park" (a city within KC) is by far the most searched term.

Translating that to your website, it would behoove me to actually create a seperate page with content dedicated to that keyword and city. Maybe a few other cities are also being searched frequently. I would want to create seperate pages for each city. This technique will give you much more traction in the search engines.

If nothing else, keyword research helps you prioritize your optimization efforts and you may find that no one is searching for your product/service in certain cities. This is good to know so you don't waste time optimizing for a certain city...

There are lots of keyword research tools out there. Google's Keyword Research tool is decent (and free).

I hope that helps!

Great job bro! You said it right, and Google Keyword tool is a very helpful tool for us.

meta tag is more important as it going to display in SERP. and you add keywords 5 or 10 its not going to display so prefect description going to work more effectively.

yes!
You should include your small city name in your Title, description and meta tags also. It will specify your business and site as wall

You can find out what keywords your website is searched for through the Google keyword tool, Semrush or Alexa.com… You can find the usual queries or keywords typed in by users that bring them to your site in the first place.
Bunching up the small city names in keywords, meta tags and description in the front page can be tedious – and would not be as effective as making a DIFFERENT PAGE for each city.
Researching on the modified keyword first, with city name or product keyword modifier- like “low cost landscaping service in Atkinson Nebraska” before doing anything to your site will help you save time in creating additional pages for your site.
