Welcome to WPBeginner and thank you for watching.
In this video we’ll look at 7 of the best free Google Maps plugins for WordPress. Before we cover this just note that Google
Maps offer an embed code that you can customize and use on a post or page without needing a plugin.
You just have to switch to text editor to add it. But many people look at a plugin for the added
customizations that you’ll have. So the first one we’ll look at it the Mappress

automatically embed before and after a post or use a shortcode for the map. Next up we have the Google Maps builder and that

nearby places with Google places as well. Number 3 is the WP Google Maps. And this lets you can create maps easily by entering an address, you can get directions, set markers and more. It also comes with a widget for your sidebar. And number four is the WP Google Map plugin. This is an interactive map plugin that can

locations. Number five is Google Maps widget and this one lets you display a map in the sidebar or another widget area. when you click on the map it will show up in
