Two Addresses In The Footer...
Posted 28 July 2007 - 10:01 PM
Basically, I had a client ask me a question I didn't have the answer for, so I told him I'd get back to him when I could figure this out.
We believe that putting a business address in the footer of a site helps with both regional Organic rankings and Local Search rankings. However, this clients wants to have 2 addresses in his footer.
Imagine an address in Utah and another one in Texas both being in the footer (one for his store, the other for his headquarters).
What would this do, in the eyes of Google?
Would it improve regional rankings for both states, cancel out the value of having either state, or do nothing at all? I just don't know, and I've never seen this come up in a discussion before.
Has anyone done any research, had any experience with, or read any patents on this subject? I'd appreciate your feedback.

I don't know what this person sells... but my bet is that there are TONS more buyers of that product in Texas. lol

However, if visitors looking for 'dog training store address' or 'dog leash hq address' won't find what they want, they'll be pretty disappointed. I'd think about the visitors first.

absolutely defines what works w/in G to obtain local visibility. Address info w/ appropriate site architecture is critical.
Appearing within the G Maps/Y and MSN local is a function of entering the business w/ each engine.
I would articulate the difference between the two addresses within content to differentiate between the two locations.
my simple $0.02 ;-)
