Add product categories
Help your customers quickly find what they need in your Shop by creating product categories. If a particular category has lots of products, consider creating subcategories, such as Clothing: Women's, Men's and Children's. You also can rearrange categories so the most popular ones are listed first.
Note: Main categories can only have two levels of sub-categories. So "Clothing > Women's > Shoes" would work but "Clothing > Women's > Shoes > Sandals" would not.
- Log in to your GoDaddy account and open your product. (Need help opening your product?)
- In your Products list, click Online Store, and then click Manage next to the account you want to use.
- From the Products tab, click Categories.
- On the Categories page, click Add category.
- Enter a Category name, plus an optional Title and Description.
Note: While only the Category name is required, filling in the Title and Description fields helps customers find you through search engines like Google®.
For example, if in the Title field you add keywords commonly associated with that category, it increases the likelihood that customers searching with those keywords will find your pages. Your Description appears in search engine results summarizing your category. A quick-to-scan description of your category's specific features can help grab customers' attention.
- When you're done, click Save to close the window. The category is added to the Categories page. (To see how it looks to customers, click View Store.)
After creating categories, you can easily change or delete them as needed. You also can turn a category into a subcategory or rearrange them as you like.
