An Industry Category is a grouping designation for a collection of websites. All websites are assigned an Industry Category by Similarweb's categorization engine.

A website's industry category (and sub-category) is determined based on the site's content tags, similarity scores, and a learning set of millions of websites with verified category assignments.

See the complete list of defined website categories.

Tip: Industry categories are useful when analyzing the overall performance of a market. For research on a subset of websites, consider creating a custom industry and include only the sites most relevant to your business.
