Page Generator Pro allows you to automatically produce keywords comprising of cities and/or ZIP codes.  To do this:

  1. Click the Generate Nearby Cities / ZIP Codes button below the Title
    Page Generator Pro: Keywords: Add Keyword Button
  2. Define the following options:
    1. Keyword: the template tag you’ll use when generating Pages / Posts / Custom Post Types.  This must be unique, and not a template tag you’ve already defined.
    2. City / ZIP Code: The city or ZIP code to use as the center / starting point of the radius.
    3. Country: The country that the City / ZIP code belongs in.
    4. Radius: The number of miles to fetch all nearby cities / ZIP codes from.
      1. When Output Type = City, the maximum value here is 100 miles
      2. When Output Type is not City, the maximum value here is 18 miles
    5. Output Type: Defines the data that will be stored as Terms.  For example, if you want to return a list of Postcodes with Cities:
      1. Click inside the field
      2. Select the Postcode option
      3. Select the City option
        To change the order of existing selected fields, drag and drop them.
    6. Include City / ZIP Code?: If enabled, includes the defined City or ZIP Code above as the first term in the keyword list.
