Why and How to Add Google Maps in Blogger

Embed Google Maps
I have been working with blogger for more than a year now. In this time period, I've visited thousands of blogs (that includes business blogs too) made with blogger. The most shocking thing is that I have never seen a blog with Google map embedded in it.

Till now, I don't know the real reason behind it.

Probably the reasons could be
  • They don't know about Google maps (So sad)
  • They think its hard to embed Google maps

Why You Should Add Google Maps?

Actually, It is one such thing that make things easier...
Imagine this yourself...

You're reading a blog post about an event that is going to be hosted somewhere you're not familiar with.

Will you be happy to see a Google map of that place embedded in that post?

Yes. Right?

If you think its too hard to embed a Google map to your blogger blog, believe me, Its easy as a hell.
