Hi I have a Pet Sitting/Dog Walking business. The main category being Pet Sitting, I have selected Dog Walking & Dog Walker as additional categories. If I go to Google & search for Pet Sitters in my area my business is listed on Google Maps - Wonderful, however, if I search for Dog Walker in my area, my business is not listed at all. Any ideas why its not picking up those extra categories?

it might be a matter of rankng and relevance.

I just checked with one of my own listings having specified several categories and I get them listed not only if searching for the main category

Thanks, I have been messing around & seems it will list the business if I search for Dog Walkers & the post/zip code or Dog Walkers & the County/State but not if I search Dog Walkers & the town! Think I will just have to be happy its there somewhere!
