Most people know the importance of embedding Google My Business’ Google Maps into their website as it has been proven again and again to increase the search engine ranking of their site.

Google My Business Maps Embedded The Right Way

However, I often see people doing it improperly. I see even top SEO experts make the mistake of embedding it wrong.

Here’s how to do it correctly:

  1. Go to Google.com/maps and type in your Google My Business’ listing name

    1. This is where most people go wrong: you need to search for your exact Google My Business listing name for maximum SEO ranking, NOT your business address.Correct vs. Wrong Way to Embed Google Maps My Business
