Easy Google Maps: A Comprehensive Review

Are you looking to easily add Google Maps to your WordPress page, blog post, or widget? Then the Easy Google Maps plugin is the perfect solution for you. Easy Google Maps (EGM) is an easy-to-use plugin that allows you to quickly and easily embed Google Maps onto your website. In this article, we will take a look at what EGM has to offer and guide you through its setup.

Easy Google Maps: Breakdown

Easy Google Maps makes it easy to add a stylish, interactive map to your website. All you need to do is add the Google Maps API key to the plugin settings page. The plugin requires the Google Maps JavaScript API and the Geocoding API to be enabled. Once those are added, you can start creating your map. The plugin offers two different map types: Roadmap and Satellite. The Roadmap type will create a standard map, while the Satellite type creates a map displayed as aerial imagery. You can further customize your map by adding markers, labels, lines, and directions. You can also edit the zoom level, show or hide the traffic layer, and enable or disable Google Street View.

The plugin also lets you add HTML attributes to the map. The available attributes are: size, type, zoom, latitude, longitude, markers, overtilt, and language. You can also set an affix link to your map, so users can open it directly in Google Maps. This is especially useful if you are showing a route or directions on your map. Additionally, with EGM you can associate any post, page, or widget with a particular map. This will enable visitors to quickly navigate to the associated page on the map, which can be embedded on any page or post.

Easy Google Maps is also highly optimized for mobile devices. The plugin will automatically resize the map to fill the entire mobile window, meaning that regardless of the size of the device, the map will always look great. Furthermore, the plugin is tightly integrated with Yoast SEO, ensuring that your map will beautifully complement your website.

Pros of Using Easy Google Maps

Accurate and Fast Mapping: The Easy Google Maps plugin makes it easy to embed a fast and accurate map into WordPress websites. The plugin has a simple, straightforward setup process that allows you to embed Google Maps with a few clicks of the mouse. Additionally, each map can be customized and edited to fit the needs of your particular website.

Easy to Use Interface: The Easy Google Maps plugin features an intuitive user interface that makes creating and customizing maps for your WordPress site a breeze. The plugin was designed to be easy to use, so regardless of your skill level you will be able to use the plugin to create stunning maps for your website.

Advanced Customization Options: The Easy Google Maps plugin offers advanced options and customizations that allow users to fine-tune their maps to their exacting needs. These features include the ability to change the size and shape of the map as well as the ability to add pins, custom labels and images to the map.

Interactive Maps: The Easy Google Maps plugin makes it easy to create interactive maps that allow your users to zoom in, zoom out and pan around the map. The interactive maps also feature overlays and an information box that can be used to provide additional information or to display photos and videos related to the map.

Responsive Design: Finally, the Easy Google Maps plugin was designed with mobile users in mind. The plugin will automatically detect the screen size of the device it is being viewed on and adjust the map accordingly. This helps to ensure that your maps look great on all devices.

Cons of Using Easy Google Maps

Inefficient Planning: The Easy Google Maps Plugin makes it easy to load maps quickly but it is not very efficient if you want to plan out the layout for your specific project. The plugin will often not take into account the size or shape of the area you are trying to map out, so you may have to resort to manual measurements or other methods of measuring the area.

Gets Cluttered: The downside of Easy Google Maps is that it can get quite cluttered and difficult to navigate when using multiple layers. This can be a huge issue, especially for businesses that may want to place multiple markers or pins on their maps in an organized manner.

Confusing Interface: Another downside of using Easy Google Maps is that the user interface can be a bit confusing for those unfamiliar to its features. Some features that may seem straightforward can be difficult to understand or operate, making it difficult to customize your maps.

No Support: Although Easy Google Maps can come in handy, the downside is that there is no customer support for this plugin. If you have any questions or need help troubleshooting the plugin, you will be on your own.

Limitations: Finally, Easy Google Maps does have its limitations. For instance, the plugin will not let users you customize how far back the map goes in terms of history, nor does it have an animation feature that can simulate movement through time.
