How to write title tags for places?

In my title tag, how do I identify for Google the name of a place that has replicates and areas within areas?

For example, I have lots of content about San Francisco, which is an area within Panama City, which is the capital city of the Republic of Panama.   I don’t want Google to confuse the place I’m writing about with San Francisco, California.  Also, I want to let Google know that San Francisco is an area within Panama City, Panama (as opposed to Panama City, Florida), so I may get on the SERP for certain keywords in Panama City, Panama.

Let’s say that my content is about the construction standards in the suburb of San Francisco, which is in Panama City, in the Republic of Panama.  What is the best title tag?  I listed some possibilities below, although I assume you may have even a better one.

Construction standards San Francisco area of Panama City, Republic of Panama
Panama City, Panama, San Francisco area construction standards
Construction standards in Panama City Panama San Francisco?

  • Sam Mah: You also need to add these tags:
    - Hreflang and Geo targeting.
    These tags help us to tell Google that you target certain language and location in the world.
