This is something where you have to balance between providing that content individually for some locations and providing that content in a centralized place for all locations. On the one hand, having that per location makes it a little bit easier for those who are at that location already to figure out what is happening there. On the other hand, having that centralized makes it a little bit easier to make that content fairly strong so that when we have someone who is looking for that type of content, we know, well, this is really strong content, that we could show it to them. So that’s something where you have to balance that out almost on your side with regards to your business- with regards to whether or not you want to limit it to your local pages, or whether you want to make a strong global version that you refer to from your global pages. And some of that might depend on the number of locations that you have. If you have a handful of locations, then maybe keeping that per location is fine. If you have hundreds of locations, then I would definitely just put that into one single place. So for example, if you’re looking at a business like McDonald’s, then they would have one place where they put their menu, which is the same for probably the whole country. And they list the individual locations, but they don’t put that menu on every individual location page. So that’s something where sometimes it makes sense to go this way. Sometimes it makes sense to go that way.
