Hi guys I am new here so please be gentle :)
I have created a web page for a small mail order business.
The page asks the reader if they are in need of a supplier for products in their "area" and if they have ever been let down by a supplier in that "area" etc. It also lists all the local villages and hamlets around the [area] where they can also supply too.
This page is dynamically created and the [area] changes and so do the small towns that are local to the town. The page also contains information on the products so the word count vs town names is not stupid.
An example of one of the URL would be www.website.com/1014/Halesowen/
It basically covers the whole of the UK so around 800 main towns with 28,000 local villages.
The URL changes, so does the title and h1 tags, also each page is Geo coded for that town.
My question really is this a good or bad idea?
Is it a black hat technique ?
I have been told if I have to ask the question then it probably is but the site does supply to all these areas just as any mail order company does and would like to get listed higher in each town for the products.
I have seen this done on a few sites but only with a few targeted towns and not the whole of the UK so I would be really interested in your guys thoughts on this.
I would post the URL to the site but as I am new here I am a bit unsure of the rules regarding posting links.
The whole site needs a lot of other onsite SEO work doing and I will be doing that over the next few weeks.
I look forward to your views on this.
p.s. If I am allowed to post the URL without getting into trouble so you can see it someone let me know?
Thanks in advance
