GMB Location Primary Category and Adwords Location Extension[ Edited ]

Does Primary Category in GMB Location play a part in Adwords Location Extension? We are only interested in creating GMB Location because we use Adwords Location Extension. Due to time constraint, we like to put a generic / default category as the primary category in GMB location instead of mapping category of each business to a GMB category if it doesn't affect how Adwords Location Extension behaves.

Hi @YP M,
Primary Category does not have an affect on Adwords Location Extensions. However, Google My Business does not have a generic/default category, so we ask that you map locations to the correct category.
