There are many reasons why you might want to add a Google Maps map to your WordPress site. Perhaps you want to show your location to visitors, or you want to give them directions to your business. Maybe you just want to add a fun, interactive element to your website. Whatever the reason, adding a Google Maps map to your site is easy with Elementor.
Before you can add a Google Maps map to your site, you’ll need to sign up for a Google Maps API key. This is a unique code that allows you to access Google’s mapping services. To get started, first visit the Google Cloud Console and create a new project. Next, once you’ve created your project, click on the “Enable APIs and Services” button and search for “Google Maps API.” Finally, select the API and click “Enable.”
Next, you’ll need to install the Elementor Google Maps widget. This can be done by either downloading the widget from the WordPress plugin repository or by installing it directly from your WordPress dashboard. Once the plugin is installed and activated, you will find the Google Maps widget under the “Widgets” tab in the Elementor editor.
To add the Google Maps widget to your page, simply drag and drop it onto your canvas. You’ll then be prompted to enter your API key and select your desired map location. You can also customize the map’s appearance by adjusting the zoom level, map type, and marker icon.
Once you’ve finished customizing your map, hit the “Publish” button to make it live on your site. You can then test your map to make sure it’s working properly and that all the customization options are displayed correctly.
