Including a map on your Contact Us page or Directions page can help give visitors a good visual indication as to where you are located as well as help to enhance these pages.

Adding a Google Map to your website is easier than you may think and you don’t have to be an expert Web Developer to do this.

Here is an easy to follow step by step guide to adding a Google map to your website.

All you need to do is go to Google Maps: maps.google.com

Once there search for your location in the search bar:

Then choose which view you wish to add to your site. You have the choice between Satellite and Map:

You also have the option of Street View by dragging the yellow man to the location of your business.

Once you have chosen which view you wish to have on your site you need to capture the HTML Code which is done by clicking on the link option in the top right hand side.

This will then provide you with the code you need.

An option of customising your embedded map is also on offer by clicking on the “Customise and preview embedded map” link directly below the HTML code being provided.

Here you can adjust the map to how you want it.

Once complete simply add the HTML code to your web page and your done.
