URL and Google Ranking

by @CBC (121), 3 weeks ago

I have been told that my business URL causes issues with Google ranking.

  1. The URL is different than my business name.
  2. I live in a suburb of a larger city. I am trying to rank in the larger city, but my URL has the suburb name in it.

These 2 reasons are what I am being told is the reason I'm not ranking. Will I need to get a different name for a website that is similar to by business name or Can I just add a page to my existing website that highlights the larger city and try to rank for that?

The existing page can be optimized for the larger city area too. Use the suburb and main city name in page title etc. In addresses, wherever you use, mention the main city name too together with the suburb name. Winning some citations from prominent directories will take you there.

Thank you for your response. I hope you are correct, but let me give you more information.

I live in Omaha and my office is in Ralston (suburb). My URL is ralstonchiropractor, but my Biz name is Complete Balance Chiropractic.

Based on this info. is your response the same?
