About Direction Local Categories

Find out below the answer to some of the most common questions about Categories.

How does Direction Local work with categories?

Attributes are connected to your main category. In the dropdown in Direction Local, you will find all the attributes that Google makes available for the main category. Attributes are only used by Google when someone is looking for something related to your business, but not necessarily your name.

Why is the category chosen in the platform not being displayed with the exact same name on the different publishers?

This may happen because we relate the categories to the closest category offered by the publisher.

The category offered by Google is not available in Direction Local yet. What should I do?

While we aim to add all Google categories once selectable in Google My Business it is possible that certain categories are not available in Direction Local yet. If the category is available on Google, you can request it to be added by contacting our operational team at [email protected].
