How Do You Embed Google Maps on Your Site Using Personyze?

With Personyze, it’s easy to embed a Google Map into your website. The process consists of uploading a series of locations with their relevant latitude, longitude, place IDs, and description in the form of a spreadsheet or RSS feed, or adding them manually using the wizard.

Next, you’ll choose how to display the map, whether in a placeholder (embedded in the page) or a popup. Lastly, you’ll set the size of the map, and any relevant CSS elements, if you want the map to have any sort of special frame or look-and-feel. Use the targeting settings to determine who sees the map, usually this will be “All Visitors.”

That’s essentially all there is to it; it’s important to note that Personyze display maps widget does not require the Google Maps HTML code, or any other similar embed code on your website. The only code that is required is to integrate Personyze to your site by copying and pasting our tracking code into the header of your master page; that’s it! One copy/paste, and all of the myriad features available through Personyze, including the display maps widget, can go live on your site.

Once you’re all set up, locations on the map will be displayed using a Google Maps pin or marker, and additional location information can be included side-by-side with the map, on your page. It’s possible to have multiple locations listed there, and when the user clicks them, the map will change to those locations.

 

Dynamic Display Maps Widget in Action

In this use case, a human resources website is displaying their nearest location to visitors, based on their IP network and/or GPS location. When a visitor arrives at the site, Personyze knows instantly where they are; using that data, it is able to show them the nearest career center to their current location, along with several alternatives which can also be clicked, and viewed using the embedded Google Map.

In this case, the visitor happens to be in Arcadia, FL.
