How do I create a new directory category?

Your directory listings can be assigned to one or more categories. For example, if you ran a local health care website, you may have two directories on your website:

  • Primary care doctors
  • Specialists

Each of these categories was created in your Taxonomy Manager. This article will show you how to add directory categories.

Note: Some websites use the term buyer's guide instead of directory. In your dashboard, however, it will be called a directory.

1. To add a new directory category, go to your Taxonomy Manager under Sales/Marketing in your dashboard.
