Hi Dave

 

Google's guidelines recommend minimising your categories and keeping them as high level as possible but if you wish to add more than one category you can do so in your GM dashboard.

I cannot add something as simple as "Auto Sales" in category. All of the other auto sales businesses in our town show up in that category, but it will not even appear as an option. When I type it in it says, "invalid input."
