Question: He mentioned that you don’t need to be in Chicago to be listed at the top, but earlier said that the server needed to be in the same country to be listed at the top?
Question: This is probably for tomorrow, but if your key word then goes to a box, ie, corporate floral arrangements, then when you click on corporate floral arangements, does it need to go to another page with all the verbiage or can it be a scrolll down, where you can scroll down or click to jump down?
Answer: Your first question is about geographics. If you are targeting a COUNTRY (e.g. Google.ca, or Google.co.uk), then your server NEEDS to be in that COUNTRY. It doesn’t matter what city. So since we are in the USA then we can show up easily on Chicago. Our server is actually in Florida. Canada / USA are closely connected so it is not as big for those two countries.
