If you are running a business such as a store, cafe, or restaurant, it might be tricky for visitors who are coming from abroad or are unfamiliar with the area to find it right away. For that reason, your business’ website should include a user-friendly map that will spare your guests all the unnecessary wandering. However, Google Maps plugins can often be either buggy, mobile unresponsive, or take hours to set up, slowing down your website and taking minutes to load, frustrating both you and the visitors.
By the end of this article, you will get to know Google Maps Widget, an effective plugin that allows you to create and add a functional and completely customizable Google Map to your website. Let’s take a closer look at its features.
1) Completely customizable
The map shown on your website can be adjusted according to your preferences even to the tiniest details, which means it can be made to match your website’s overall design. To begin with, you can choose any Google map type you prefer – a satellite map, road map, terrain map, hybrid map, or a custom map image. The color schemes are endless, whether you prefer to choose from already existing map options or create a customized style.
When it comes to pins, you can adjust their type, size, and color, or simply choose one of 1500+ pre-made pin designs. Of course, you can add as many maps and pins as you like as well as adjust the language options since the widget is available in 12 languages. An additional window that will appear when a visitor clicks on a pin can be added too, showing either a lightbox, custom URL, or an interactive map. Other pin options include automatic pin grouping depending on their distance, showing/hiding pins based on group names set on each pin, or importing multiple locations from an external file.
It is also important to mention that with Google Maps Widget you can place a map pretty much anywhere on your website, whether in posts, sites, custom post types, sidebars, or menus. The clone widget feature saves your time and makes it easier to work with multiple maps.
2) Easy to setup & use
In contrast to other Google Maps plugins, which sometimes require 20 or more requests to load a single map, with site load reduced to 2MB Google Maps Widget simply needs only one. After installing the plugin and generating a mandatory API key required by Google, your map can be set to the website within minutes. The user-friendly editing interface of Google Maps Widget does not require any design or coding knowledge. However, if you do not feel like customizing at the moment, simply set up a default map and you are good to go.
3) Mobile Responsive
Opening a website map on your phone and realizing that its mobile mode is unresponsive and bugged can be frustrating, especially if the visitors are unfamiliar with the area, stuck in traffic and need driving directions as soon as possible. Maps set with the Google Maps Widget are completely mobile responsive and will not slow down your website, making sure you do not miss any on-the-go customers.
