To increase visibility and rank in a local search, is it better to have backlinks pointing to our business website or our Google Business / Plus page? We have a great relationship with many businesses that link to us, we just want advice on where the link is most useful. A completely different topic is town and city boarders on google maps. We have a business address in Hudson Florida 34667, but a search of Hudson Florida shows boarders that are very small, it shows us miles outside the boundaries. We believe that is this is limiting our search results in "keyword" + "Hudson". Our address is

13322 County Line Rd, Hudson Florida 34667

Always point the links to your website. I don't think building links to a GMB page does much.
