Community: Forum: Suggestions for HappyCow

HappyCow Site Forum

I have noticed recently with a couple of Australian cities (Canberra and Perth), that suburbs are being listed under the city, rather than as suburbs.

ie:
Subiaco, Perth
Yangebup, Perth
Bedford, Perth,
Northcote, Perth

Northbridge is the only one of these that I would describe as an inner suburb, Yangebup is a long way away... on the other side of the city of Fremantle.

Listing in this way no doubt increases the search results for 'Perth', but also means that a search for 'Northcote' (as I just did), returns nothing at all.
I doubt either listing method affects the app due to the app searching by distance from current location.

Are there guidelines for listing suburbs based on proximity to cities and/or population density?

    Hi verbosity,
    Please get in touch and let's review this and restructure the listings better.
    Thanks, Eric
