I'm having trouble changing something in Google Places.  I have tried multiple times to change our category from 'car leasing' to 'car rental'.  On the Google Places that appear when searching for us, it comes up with leasing, but when I go in to edit it, it says car rental.  

How can I get "Car Rental" to stick?

Hi Darrin


This sounds like an issue with language settings. I am in Australia and my language settings are set to Australian or UK English and when I view your Google+ page I see 'car rental'.


I think you must have UK English set up for Google+ which is why you see Car Rental when editing but a US English setting somewhere else so you see Car Leasing when searching.


I wouldn't worry too much about it - Google knows enough about language idiosyncrasies to associate leasing and rental searches together.
