    Nice find Darren! Thanks for sharing Joy. I wonder why or if there is a reason for Google making it less than obvious to see categories.

    Re: How to See ALL the Categories a G+ Page is Using

    Could not post yesterday, but I'm confused about something...

    Couldn't you always do this? I mean like the past 2 years??? Is the whole tip to just click to see the additional categories or is there something else I missed?

    I think you're right Linda. It's been around for awhile. However, I've noticed that sometimes you can do that to see the additional cats and other times, it's a link that gives you all the "dentists" or whatever cat in that area on maps.

    Yes, true Scott. Always meant to try to figure out what triggered that diff.

    Assume it's the way the page was created? Like if it was created in Places and manually merged or one of the various other ways? Maybe? Not sure.

    Linda, it definitely was a feature going back to last year at some point. But it went away for several months.

    This recent re-inclusion of the categories on the live page started at least a month or so ago. At least that's when I first noticed it.

    Can't you do this with Mapmaker as well? Or do the Mapmaker categories have a flaw like slow to update, not complete, inaccurate, etc?

    Good find no matter what Darren!

    Hi Joshua, the categories on Map Maker are always visible, so I don't think it would need a hack like this.

    Sorry, I meant doesn't MM show the exact same categories just like this? What is the advantage to using this over MM? Is MM less accurate, slow to update, etc?
