For businesses that encompass multiple categories, it is important that their listings show up for all relevant searches, and additional categories help in this regard. For example, if a veterinary clinic also has a pet spa, they would want to rank for both ‘vet clinic near me’ and ‘pet spa near me’. Adding secondary categories to your listing is how you can achieve that, and here’s how you can add them in your Google listing.
Step 2: Click On Your Business Info Card
Once logged in, you can view your business activity and the Home menu, which is displayed on the left side. In the Home menu, click on ‘Info’ to display your business information.
Step 3: Open The Edit Category Dialog Box
In your business info, you will notice your business’ name and category listed, with an edit icon next to them. Click on the edit icon next to your business category.
Step 4: Click On ‘Add Another Category’
Once the dialog box pops up, you will see an option to ‘add another category’. Click on it to start adding more categories to your business listing.
Step 5: Choose From The Available Categories
When you click on ‘add another category’, you will get a text box where you can type in a category that you want to add. As you type, you will get a list of available relevant categories. Choose the most appropriate ones, click on ‘Apply’, and you’re done!
