How tp Put Geos or Location in Meta Description

hi

I am setting up a meta description for my dentist on his blog. i understand that you should use geos ( like atlanta or new york ) if they are relevant to the site. my query is should I use "teeth whitening new york" ," cosmetic dentistry new york" or "teeth whitening", "cosmetic dentistry", "new york", "dentist" ... ie the geo separate and not connected to the other keywords.

Thanks a lot

Hi Chantelle,

If you want to rank in a specific location, then placing the area on the meta-description helps. You would want to make the meta-description understandable to users, instead of containing snippets of text like " The best cosmetic dentist in New York" or something like "We offer teeth whitening services in New York."

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Hi Chantelle,

In addition to what Cecille said, make sure that when you are using Geo + keyword/s, these combination should at least be 'searchable', meaning if you search this keyword using Google Keyword tool, people are actually looking for this long tail keyword.

You may try doing keyword research first so you also have an idea of what keyword combination people are typing in search engines for your niche.

I hope that helps.
