    This kind of freaked me out a little

    I was optimizing some categories in the OLD Google Places Dashboard and I was able to add 10 categories.....WOW

    Anyone else seeing this?

    Weird Colan, good catch!

    I just checked my business listing and I already had 5 and it let me add a 6th but I didn't hit enter or go any further and backed out before submitting because my listing is merged and you are not supposed to edit in old dash.

    Wonder if that's some kind of sign that the listing is in the process of being upgraded?

    Just checked several other accounts and the ability to add ten categories is available on all of them.

    I'm seeing this in some of my accounts as well. Very strange.
