Tips for Doing More with Your Geo Pages

There’s a whole lot you can do with the geo page generator. In fact, it should be able to help you create any geo pages you want. Anything you can create on your website content management system (WordPress, Drupal, Jumla, etc.), you should be able to replicate with the geo page generator. Below are some common ways people like to take things further and do more with their geo pages. If you’re not able to get the geo page generator to accurately replicate pages on your website, let us know and we’d be happy to help you take a look at the situation and figure something out.

Making Each Geo Page More Unique

Use more paragraphs in your master document. The more paragraphs you use, the more unique each of your geo pages will be.

Use the <info> feature to add completely unique content for each geo page. Using this feature you can put something completely different on every one of your geo pages. You can even put multiple unique features on each one of your geo pages using multiple <info> tags (like <info1>, <info2>, and <info3>).

Customize a Geo Page or Make It More Local

If you want to make your geo pages super local, you can use the <info> feature to put something completely unique on each of your geo pages. To create a really local feel, a tourism company might use this feature to reference and link to several interesting attractions, tourist stops, or adventures in each area they create a geo page for. A company that is helping people may use the <info> feature to link to other community services or non-competing businesses who provide related or complementary services. Learn how to use the <info> feature.

Add More Links to Your Geo Pages

You can add more links to your geo pages than our system appears to permit. Our Excel spreadsheet only provides room for up to 12 links (the last one being <Link12>). However, you can use HTML code in your master document to add as many links as you want.

How to Put Videos, Maps, Slideshows, or Other Cool Features on Your Geo Pages

If you’d like to put a video, map, or any other feature like this on your geo pages, there are a couple of ways you can do this. Here are the steps:

  1. Get the HTML code to embed or insert the object onto a webpage. In YouTube and Google Maps for example, you can always find the option to embed a video or a map on your website. It then offers you the code to do this. Copy the code (hit Ctrl + C on your keyboard to Copy).
  2. Next, paste the code into a spot on your master document if you want the video, map, or special feature to be on all of your geo pages (press Ctrl + V on your keyboard to Paste). If you only want the video, map, or feature to be on certain pages, paste the code into the <info> area of the Excel spreadsheet (paste it in one of the <info> columns – like <info1> – on the same row as the name of the city where you would like to use this feature). See how to use the <info> feature.
  3. Test out one of your new geo pages to make sure the video, map, or feature works properly and looks right. To test a geo page, go to tab 4 on your Excel spreadsheet labeled ‘4. Launch Pages’, copy the code from the ‘Body Text’ column for whatever city you choose, login to your website content management system (WordPress, Drupal, Jumla, etc.), create a new webpage, switch to HTML source view (could also be called ‘Rich Text View’), paste the code you copied (you can use Ctrl + V on your keyboard to Paste), and then switch your view back to the normal user friendly view (this will cause your website content management system to process the code and display it for you as it will on your website). If anything doesn’t look quite right, you can now fine-tune things. If you want the size of your video or map to be larger or smaller, go back to place you got the code from (YouTube or Google Maps in this case) and select a different size. Again, copy the code for this different size and repeat the process above to test it out and make sure it looks good to you.
