Hi all.

 

When entering details for my business in the "google my business" I am really uncertain as to what category my business would fall under that would have the maximum exposure. Please, could someone assist me as to what category I should place my Catering Equipment sales under?

 

Kind Regards

Hi @Dylan R !

 

Here are some relevant categories I found:

 

Kitchen Supply Store

Catering Food and Drink Supplier

 

These don't match exactly but Google is looking at more than just your Google My Business listing to determine what kind of business you are.  Make sure your website content is optimized for relevant keywords and if more specific categories are available in the other directories, make sure to leverage those.

 

This is a helpful resource for finding what categories are available in the major directories: https://moz.com/local/categories
