    meta tags question same content searching but different cities

    I have approximately 20 pages in my site that all have the same content - for different cities

    Each city has two separate html pages. One for data and charts, the other for searching for real estate.

    I understand that it's bad practice to cut, copy and paste tags but my site offers similar information for each city.

    current configuration:
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en"/>
    <meta name="description" content="Corona del Mar 92625, find oceanfront, bayfront homes, pricing analysis, median sales price, local real estate broker, agent, local real estate office, company, local real estate knowledge " />
    <meta name-equiv content="Rick Schreiber Properties With Style, Inc. Orange County Real Estate ">
    <meta name="author" content="Rick Schreiber Properties With Style, inc." />
    <meta name="copyright" content= 2012-01-01 Properties With Style, Inc. "&copy; ">
    <link 
        type="text/css"
        rel="stylesheet"
        href="css/screen.css"
        media="screen,projection,tv"/>
    
    <title>
    Corona del Mar Ocean And Bayfront Homes - Properties With Style, Inc.
    </title>
    	<script
    		type="text/javascript"
    		src="css/scripts/slideshow.js"
    	></script>
    </head><body>
    pageWrapper . . . etc.
    I think my brain would explode if I have to come up with 20 different ways to explain the same thing for each city!

    Any clues here . . ?

    Thanks much . . . Rick

    The description is all wrong...the other meta tags author copyright you can remove all that its just guff. The description should be a summary about the page not a place for you to stuff keywords.
    Logic without the fatal effects.

    I felt most of it was junk.

    So much miss information on the internet.

    Probably the most important one there is the <meta name="description" ...> element, and as said, that should have a clear, concise description of the page (and a different one for each page). That line often appears under the title in search results, and helps search engines categorize your page.

    It kind of depends where you look.

    I think each city could have something specific about it. If you are serious about SEO then you have to roll up your sleeves and get the job done.
