Today we’re excited to announce a new feature on Google Maps that allows you to add maps to your blog or website just by copying and pasting a snippet of HTML. And once you embed the map, it has all the same functionality of the Google Maps you know and love; it’s clickable, draggable, and zoomable.

Adding a map to your website or blog is now as easy as embedding a YouTube video. No programming skills are required, and there’s no need to sign up for a Maps API key. All it takes is three simple steps:

    Might be a neat option for you to build this functionality into our blogs for when we auto-add a new listing or open house. A Google Map would be a great tool for a subscriber to my blog so he or she can find the open house easily.

    Google Maps is already built into your listing and the auto blog already links to the listing. So it is doing that, just in a different way. I hope that helps.

    You could also locate places of interest near properties you are selling, for instance, locate a starbucks, library, school, grocery store, etc plus the property you are selling for each home. That way people could easily see what amenities they have.

  7. What a great tip. I’ve seen this in use, but didn’t know it was so simple. Thanks a lot for sharing.
