Types of edits

Business name

Represent your business exactly as it appears in the offline world. Changing your business name between when you request a verification postcard and when you enter the verification code will reset the verification process. For more information, see the Google My Business quality guidelines.


Enter the one category that best represents your business. All locations of a business must share one Primary Category. Choose a category that is as specific as possible, but representative of your main business. If you enter several categories, the category entered in the first field will be selected as your primary category.

You may also choose up to nine more additional categories. If you can't find a category for your business, choose one that is more general.

  • Don't use categories solely as keywords or to describe attributes of your business.
  • Don't use categories that pertain to other businesses that are nearby or related, such as a business physically contained within your business or an entity that contains your business.

To show this for your business, you’d enter the first open time by choosing Saturday, 9:00am, and 2:00pm. Then, you’d click Add hours, but this time enter 5:00pm and 10:00pm.
