What does a red update mean?


Aug 21, 2017
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that this one’s usually put on a listing if Google updates its policies and previous categories or address are no longer valid.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!
