Few Tips for Better Results

At this point, you now know how easy it is to generate and embed Google map on your website. Now we will look at some of the tips for getting better results with the overall map generation and embedding process.

  • Give Precise Address: To quickly locate your office or store for map generation, in the address field, instead of searching with general keywords, you can copy the entire address from the google maps as it appears there and paste it here.
  • Add Your Business to Google Maps: It is recommended that you add your business to Google maps before generating the Google maps iframe code. Because by adding to google maps, you will get a marker that points at your location and a title card with your business name and address visible in it. You may follow the steps mentioned in this guide to do this.
  • Embed a Responsive Google Map: Non-responsive map, when viewed by smartphone users on your website, may go beyond the visible screen area, thus breaking your website's responsiveness. For that reason, it is best to embed a responsive google map on your website. While we have a fixed-width map generation option, you can also generate a responsive google map. Enable the 'Make Map Responsive' toggle on the map generation tool to generate a responsive google map code.
