I used to use the trick where you view the source of a competitor listing and pick up the categories that they are using, Ive not done any optimizing for a while but Ive just gone back to looking at this again and was planning on doing the same, however, I am now seeing lots of categories showing in the source that are not options for categories in gmb. Does anyone know if this has changed or if there is a good reliable way to find the categories been used by the competition anymore?
Is there a tool where you can select a business location in Google Maps and have it quickly/easily show the categories that are associated with the listing?

Note: This would be for listings that are either unclaimed or claimed by a competitor (or someone else).
