INDUSTRY CATEGORY

First, I know my opinion as a new member doesn't matter that much but this forum is not intuitive. What's wrong with the standard forum layout (phpbb, etc)? I offer this constructive criticism because I just filled out Google's 15-minute survey on user satisfaction and didn't think to mention it there.

 

My question is:

I received a message from google, in my analytics pages, encouraging me to update the "Industry Category" for the site I was looking at.  I always try to follow Google's recommendations so I went to that site's Property Settings but under Industry Category, the drop down only lists 7 categories: Arts and Entertainment, Automotive, Beauty and Fitness, Books and Literature, Business and Industrial Markets, Computers and Electronics, and Finance.

 

Is that all the categories there are? My site doesn't really fit any of those categories.

There is 25 or so? Maybe it’s because I use Internet Explorer but although I can see the scroll border on the right, when I try to scroll, nothing happens. I will try another browser. Thanks for the info.
