Inserting Google Maps

Warning
Embedding third party services is not officially supported and is only recommended for advanced users. You can easily break your website doing this, and if you require Zeald to help fix the issue then it may attract additional charges. 
If you require assistance or find a problem with the source code given by a third party, we are generally unable to assist and you would need to contact the third party directly for assistance, or obtain a customisation to embed this source.

Once you have created a Google MyMap to reflect your locations, you can embed the map into your website, or request Zeald to embed the map for you. Alternatively you may like to consider an Image Map created by Zeald.
 

Google Places

You can use Google Places to have your business be search-able on Google Maps and Google.com. When potential customers search Maps for local information, they'll find your business: your address, hours of operation, even photos of your store or products.
