Do you want to add Google Maps to your WordPress site?
Google Maps can easily display locations with directions to your users, which helps them easily find your business.
In this article, we will share some of the best paid and free Google Maps plugins for WordPress.
Adding Google Maps in WordPress
Before we discuss Google Maps plugins, it’s important to emphasize that you can add Google Maps to your WordPress website without using any plugins.
You simply copy an embed code from Google Maps and paste it into your post or page.
It will display the map as-is. There aren’t many customization options for the default Google Maps embed code.
You cannot add any custom information to the map, and you will have to switch to the text editor to add the map to WordPress posts or pages.
This is where Google Maps plugins come in handy. A plugin will allow you to add locations, markers, directions, and routes. You can create interactive and more useful maps for your users.
Now, look at our hand-picked list of the best paid and free Google Maps plugins for WordPress.
