Your Questions About Google Maps

October 18, 2012

Susan asks…

What is the difference between listing your business on Google Places and Google Maps?

To me they seem like the same thing? If you have a listing in Google Maps do you need to create a listing in Google Places? Or is it the same listing for both? What are the differences from an SEO perspective?

Administrator answers:

Google Places is Local but Google Maps is not. If you want to do Local then I would suggest to do SEO on it, since for Google Places you can SEO it so when someone is searching your product or service your business will show the first.

How do you get google maps on your site?

I want to insert a google maps feature on my site. I want to view certain locations that are listed on my site via google maps on my website. How do I do this?

Administrator answers:

First you need to have api key

http://www.google.com/apis/maps/signup.html

use that adress to take it then. You can use simple exmples from their site.

Http://www.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/examples/index.html

you need to know longtitude and latitude data to point the location. Here is example code:

function initialize() {
if (GBrowserIsCompatible()) {
var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById(“map_canvas”));
map.setCenter(new GLatLng(37.4419, -122.1419), 13);
}
}

if you dont take api of your own your site could not show the maps.

How do you get Google Maps on the iPod Touch?

I have a 4th gen iPod Touch and I want to get Google Maps on it but I can’t seem to find it anywhere except for on the Safari app online… I want to be able to access maps (saved maps) so I can use them without having to use a wifi hotspot. Any ideas on how to get Google Maps or another kind of map app that would help me achieve what I want?

Administrator answers:

Technically the only app there is is the one in the app store that’s called google maps.No other place will let you access maps unless you have wifi connection. What you could do is take still pictures with you iPod of the map you want and itll save in you photos you do this by pressing the home and lock button at the same time
