Manta search categories allow your business to be found both on and off of Manta (read search engines) based on the industry your company is in, even if your customer doesn’t search by an exact keyword. Let’s say, for example, you own a music store. Your potential customers may search Manta or in their favorite search engine for music shops, musical instruments or even music lessons. By selecting the categories you’d like your business to be listed in, you will show up when prospects look for what you offer.

To select your business category, go to ‘Business Categories’ on your company profile page and search to find and select the categories which best define the type of products or services you offer. These categories are pre-set and new ones cannot be added. However, with qualifying Premium Business Packages, you’ll have the option to catalog your business under three different Manta Search Categories.

Whether you choose one or three categories, just make sure you choose – otherwise it will default to “uncategorized”.  Now that you have the lowdown on how Manta’s search works, complete your profile with accurate Manta search categories and keywords and let the accurate search results begin!
