Google Maps

Google Maps is a free online map service from Google that you can embed on your website.

Add a Google Map to your Jimdo Site

Setting your location in a Google Map

  • Once you add the Google Maps Element, type in an address or location in the Find a location field and click Search. This will center the map over that location.  An individual name (e.g. the company name) is visible when this location has been added to Google Maps or Google MyBusiness.
  • If your business isn't showing up on the Google Map when you type in the address, make sure you have claimed your Google Business listing
Add location to Google map

Using the Google Maps Element you can:

  • Mark: Mark a specific location (street, landmark, etc.), or a specific address in the map - e.g. the address of your company. Just enter the place or address in the search box and click 'Save'.
  • Switch between Map and Satellite views.
To help pin point multiple locations, check out this tutorial on embedding a Google Map as a Widget/HTML element.

Changing the size of the Google Map

The Google Map will resize to be as wide as the element itself. If you want a smaller Google Map, place the Google Map Element in a Columns Element, as we've done here.
