When choosing your website’s desired keywords, keep local terms in consideration. If your business is a bbq restaurant in Pasadena, consider “Pasadena bbq” or “Pasadena restaurant” as keyword options.

Other important localized SEO techniques include local directories, chamber of commerce, and partner links with other local businesses. When your business is truly relavent to its keywords, optimization is easier to handle.

More advanced SEO techniques such as rss feeds using php (search engines don’t read javascript) help localized SEO. When blog posts (and tags) point to both “Pasadena” and “restaurants,” your site gains “reputation to Google” for actually being related to your keywords.
