Adding a city twice in My Business

Recommended Posts

I've noticed that in Google My Business when setting the area that you service it will allow you to enter a city twice.  If you enter it by typing the city name it includes the county and state.  If you enter the zip code it shows the city, state, and zip.

Has anyone noticed this?  Would it be beneficial to enter each city in both ways?

Doing it both ways makes sense to me because it allows you to go local by county or zip code. It couldn't hurt...

It allows me to enter a city the normal way.  Then if I enter it by zip code and the city has multiple zip codes it allows me to enter each zip code as well.

So for example it could do the following for the same town:

 

Clifton, Passaic County, New Jersey

Clifton, New Jersey, 07070

Clifton, New Jersey, 07071

Clifton, New Jersey, 07072

Clifton, New Jersey, 07073

 

Would doing this be considered optimizing or spammy?

Not spammy at all. They are different areas.
