Here's something I've been wondering about... let's pretend we're making a Google Maps listing in the Local Business Center for totally fictitious "Joe's Autobody". Let's pretend that we choose 5 categories for his business:

Auto-Body Shop
Truck Repair Shop
Car Detailing Service
Towing Service

Now Joe will once in a blue moon do some truck repair and car detailing and he contracts towing out on a case by case basis, but these are very small parts of his the business. Would adding detailing, truck repair, and towing as LBC categories dilute the search result visibility for "Mechanic" and "Auto-Body Shop"- the main bread winners?

I looked all over the web and couldn't find any information on this; just people complaining they were limited to just 5 categories. Naturally, I would rather my clients show really well for just one strong category than show kind-of-ok for five when most aren't winning any more customers.

I doubt it would be a problem, but don't know for sure from personal experience.
