Currently, most Google results for "comedy near [city]" are terrible. They're links to ticket vendors that have a small subset of shows or they show results that aren't comedy. I want my site, WanderJest, to outcompete those sites.
And I'm not doing anything clever or sketchy in generating the page. I follow live comedy in Western Mass, and I hand-curated these results. This is the most complete list available of upcoming comedy shows in the area.
The shortcut is that I'm only generating pages for a small subset of cities. The pages all have identical show listings because all the upcoming shows are in Northampton, MA, so I generated pages for every city within 30 miles of Northampton.
