If a business location is in one city but it's right on the border of another city, how does that work with SEO and Google my Business?

Hi @Staff S

 

The actual location city would be your main focus and the natural better positioning for the site, because the address would be there and any business citations created over time would be for the actual locations city.

 

If you wanted to target the other city or rather the nearest areas within the neighboring city, then I would do this with a location page / service area page on site.
