It was the most practical talk I've seen. (Just did a quick post on it, too.)
Also, the same on the Business Pages - I looked through the questions and didn't see this one.

Serving the following cities and towns and the surrounding areas:
Ashland, Fayville, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton, Hudson, Lincoln, Marlborough, Maynard, Natick, Sherborn, Southborough, Stow, Sudbury, Wayland, Wellesley, Wellesley Hills,
Each town links to a Page that has the exact same content except the Town name and phone number change. The copy, photos, everything else is the same. I consider this duplicate content and a violation of Google's website policy.
1. Can they still list the name of the towns they service on the bottom of each page and not be in violation as long as they don't link to the page?
The title tags are setup all the same except they change to the town of the page you are on. They were ranking at the top of the page for "tree service" for the towns they service, no they are not. Could that be that Google feels the pages are duplicate content, therefore, are penalizing them?
I believe that is the case, but want to reconfirm.
Any input is welcome. Thanks!
