Google Places – Supported “Place Types”

December 30, 2011

When you are creating a Google Place Page you will be asked to choose from one of the categories below. The list is small when you think of the millions of different type businesses so if you are confused as to which bucket you should select I recommend you Google your competition and see what they chose as that is where you want to also be found.
