I see a lot of people mentioning the categories. Is it true that it is better to have less than more?

Currently I have Electrician as my main category and Contractor as my additional. Someone mentioned for me to get rid fo the second one. Would that be better or should I think about adding more?

@Ampere, I suggest having only as many as are clearly relevant. In this case, "Contractor" is real broad. Even if it helped you rank for "contractors" and "contractors near me" and so forth, none of your customers is searching for that.

"Electrician" covers it.

Pick "Electrician" and maybe "Lighting Contractor."
