Having the right categories selected for your window tint business helps consumers find your tint business and know what it’s all about. Categories will also dictate where your ads on Yelp show up (if you’re paying for ads).

Yelp recently expanded their tint related categories and added window tint specific subcategories. If it’s been a while since you’ve checked and updated them, now is the time … it’ll only take a couple minutes.

It’s really easy to update your categories in your Business User’s Account by logging in at https://biz.yelp.com

Once you’re logged in, click on “Business Information” and then scroll down to “Categories & Services”

For automotive tinters, you’ll want to select: Auto Glass Services -> Car Window Tinting

And for flat glass tinters, select: Home Window Tinting

If you do both, then absolutely select both. Yelp allows up to 3 categories and in their own words “The more specific the better.”

Selecting the Home Window Tinting category will open up a long list of subcategories that you’ll want to take advantage of such as:

Reflective Window Film Installation, Opaque Window Film Installation, Frosted Window Film Installation, Window Film Removal, Anti-Glare Window Film Installation, UV Protection Window Film Installation, Decorative Window Film Installation, Ceramic Window Film Installation, Fade Reduction Window Film Installation, Graphic Window Film Installation, Insulating Window Film Installation, Solar Control Window Film Installation, Skylight Tinting, Low-E Window Film Installation, Safety & Security Window Film Installation, Privacy Window Film Installation, Anti-Graffiti Window Film Installation

Window Tint Categories on Yelp

That leaves you with one open category left. Vehicle Wraps is now a category as is Signmaking, Graphic Design, Auto Customization, Windshield Installation & Repair, and Auto Detailing.

Pick whichever three categories are most important to your business.
