I was checking the local search grid report in Bright Local for one of our clients and found out that Google is showing "Beauty parlour" as the primary category for all the businesses ranking in Google maps for the keyword beauty parlour. When I checked more deeply, I found out that the actual primary category for the businesses was anything but beauty parlour. I also logged in to the client's GMB dashboard and found that this category is not even available for us to add. Quite strange for me. Anybody seen happening anything like this?

 
Solution
Beauty parlour (English / India ) is equal to Beauty salon ( English / USA )

Add "?hl=en&gl=in" to the end of the url to see it in English/India ( Beauty Parlour )
