Is this a good SEO technique? List hundreds of cities in the US to capture long tail searches?

Question by Ryan Dick: Is this a good SEO technique? List hundreds of cities in the US to capture long tail searches?
I heard that Google will punish our site if it sees a list of 50+ cities on our website. Is this true? Can we include a laundry list of hundreds of cities in the US in efforts to capture more long tail searches? We offer our services nationwide and have noticed more and more people searching for “our service in atlanta” or “our service plano, tx” and landing on our site.

By the way, we provide sign spinners to apartment communities throughout the country: http://www.SignSpinnersForApts.com

Thanks!

Short answer:

No, you will not be punished.

Slightly more detailed answer:

If you service a city, you have every right to list it on any or all of your websites pages. However, for every city you add to a webpage, the focus on your main keywords will lessen a tiny bit and you may have to add a bit more keyword rich content to restore the main focus of the page back to your main product keywords so your site does not appear to be too spammy by the search engine. Last year, I added a list of over 100 US and Canadian cities plus all 50 states to every page of a clients 500+page website. The company is based here in Illinois. In over a year they haven’t been punished at all.

You can see for yourself by doing a google search for the phrase “discount headstones Orlando FL” and see my clients website on the first page of the results given. To find out exactly what website belongs to my client, you will have to check out my portfolio on my website. Ok, ok, I’ll give you a hint. There website sells headstones in the USA. That should be a good enough clue, but I would appreciate the visit to my site though, lol

Happy holidays!
