Google is always improving!  So, here's an update to my last post on how to add a Google map to your website.

Many websites have a "Contact" or "Directions" page that requires a map. You can use Google Maps to create a customized map and embed it on your webpage.

  1. Log into your Google account.
  2. Navigate to Google Maps.
  3. Enter the location in the search bar and press enter/return on your keyboard.

  1. In the lower right corner of the browser winder, click the gear button and select Share and embed map

  2. You will get a two options, Share link or Embed map.  
  3. To share the map link, select the link and add that to your website so users can click to see a Google map.
