My business is expanding, how should I handle the web presence of my additional two city services?

  • I have a bankruptcy law office. My website enjoys both high rankings and great reviews as a result of our optimization efforts and has become my number one generator of new business.

    Previously I focused my practice on a single metropolitan area. But recently I've expanded to also include a nearby metropolitan city 40 miles to the south and another 90 miles to the east.

    Both my brand and my personal name are popular search terms within my niche as a result of my aggressive AdWords and television campaigns which are geared to drive traffic to my site.
