Hi all,

Was reading this on Google's site and can't help but wonder how it doesn't include the red font updates that we sometimes see on listings.


Does anyone have a good reason why sometimes, items are red on the dashboard? We know from experience that this one’s usually put on a listing if Google updates its policies and previous categories or address are no longer valid. I.e. the category “cleaners” is now “too broad to be a primary category” on a client’s GMB.

But, this isn't 'official'... Anyone have any better explanation? :)

Thanks all!
If you're seeing red on a category I believe it's because Google removed the category (it no longer exists). I know this is true for your cleaning example.
