Adding City Content

Table of Contents

For every property on your website, RentPress will scan through each address and create a city-based landing page then add each property to it. For a portfolio with properties in Columbus, Ohio, you will find a page at “yoursite/city/columbus-oh/” with a title of “Apartments in Columbus, OH.” These pages provide immense SEO authority value for your website and are a great starting point for your SEO strategy.

By default, each city page will display each published property on it and, where applicable, each property’s current pricing.

These taxonomy terms also support additional content for you to build out these pages. You can find them in your WordPress dashboard under Properties > Cities.

You will then be presented with a screen allowing you to manually create a new city page on the left, and a list of all saved cities on the right. Hover your cursor over the city you’d like to edit, and click the Edit button that appears.

Assign a featured image to your city. This will be used as the main “hero” image on the floor plan listing and as a thumbnail for the floor plan on search pages. If a featured image is not set, the city will use the placeholder image assigned in the RentPress settings.

This page can now integrate into your SEO strategy passively by just letting the search engines crawl it for information. Or you can take a more active approach by adding the link into the site’s main navigation, footer, or even homepage.
