During your onboarding with rankingCoach, we ask you to give us some information about your business in just a few steps in order to be able to analyze your website correctly and help you achieve higher rankings online. In one of these steps, we ask you to choose your business sector

By selecting your business sector you will give us an insight into your business and what you do. With this, we will be able to suggest keywords, particular online directories and other SEO tips that will fit your business scope!

How can you select your business sector? You will be asked to add your business sector when setting up your project. All you have to do is enter your business sector in the search bar and select the suggestion that matches your business best .


Please note that It is not possible to manually add new business sectors to our existing list, but we currently have over 4000 categories to choose from, so we definitely have yours! If you cannot find it after the first try, be creative and enter synonyms in the search bar in order to widen your search range and find the perfect match.

In case you offer services or products that are very different from each other, you can select more than one business sector. You can select up to 10 business sectors, but please note that you always have to select one category that will be your primary business sector. This is the category that will be used for the directories synchronization.

You can edit it at any time during the setup process by using the pencil icon on the right of your screen.

Please note that you can also edit your business category from your rankingCoach dashboard once you are done with the setup. Simply click on “General” and then on “Business” and scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Feel free to get in touch with our support if you have questions or if you need help. We would be happy to help!
