My Business page is :
https://business.google.com/b/101606566077017647657/edit/l/16009642484980113235?pageId=1016065660770...

 

I want to change my primary category to "Moving and Storage Service" but when I type it, I do not get the suggestion for the same. But I noticed that my competitors are having this category.

How can I change this?

 

Many thanks in advance.

Praveen

the same category as it is available  in the US as "Moving and Storage Service" (it is internally encrypted as "gcid:moving_and_storage_service") is under the same encryption and meaning available for India as "Removals Service"

 

Please try it and give here a feedback

Hi @Praveen Y

 

About what country is your listing ?

 

I took a look fot the US list of categories and "Moving and Storage Service" is available for the US.

This might not be the case for other countries.

Therefore I need to know your country.

Hey Helmut,

 

Thanks for prompt reply. I am from India. Albeit i can see my rival business there with the same category.

The issue is that when some searches with some specific keywords related to my business, my business does not come up in results but others do because of the primary category they have.

Thanks a lot.

since Google doesn't comment any question related to ranking and search results I can't either.

I have no insights about their searching algos

@Helmut Geissler Thanks. Albeit my original question

is not about ranking but show up on results at any page. On one keyword it shows and one keywork it does not but it should.
