The correct location is posted above but I believe this website has helped me in the past for really understanding how to configure the trusted sites and with category they go in.   Please review 'Second Method" from this link:

The "second method" in this link though does blocks users from entering new trusted sites.   Just giving you a heads up!

Additionally, these GPO settings do not work if Internet Explorer Enhanced security has been enabled.
