How do I add categories to my Substack publication?

Categorizing your publication with keywords helps others discover your writing from search. You can add up to 2 categories and change them at any time. 

To add categories to your publication:

  1. Sign in to your Substack account and navigate to your publication's Settings page.
  2. In the Basics section, select from the drop-down menu what you think your publication is about. For example, Culture or Travel can be two categories you can select. 


Note: The primary category is what is taken into consideration for our leaderboards.
