Google+ page signup categories

There are five categories of Google+ pages to help guide you when signing up:

  • Product or Brand
  • Company, Institution or Organization
  • Local business or Place
  • Arts, Entertainment or Sports
  • Other

Don’t stress out about choosing the perfect category. Use the ‘Other’ category if none of the others seem to be a good fit. The core functionality and discoverability of a page isn’t affected by its category. Right now, only pages that use the Local business or Place category have different features. Local pages are designed to help people locate the business using its physical address. Learn more about local pages and what makes them unique.
