It bothers me when I get to a site and they purposely try to hide their physical address. Or even worse, forget to put it on the site. I guess it is fine if you have a mobile business, but even then a PO Box or Mailboxes Etc. address would work fine. If you do have an office, it makes sense to help people find it. In a couple minutes you can add this feature to a site.

A couple days ago I was putting the finishing touches on a site for my cousin. I wanted to add driving directions and figured that the easiest way to accomplish this was to using Google Maps. It couldn’t have been easier. Go to http://maps.google.com/ enter the address and then click the Link button in the upper right of the page. Copy the embed code and then paste it into the page. Here is an example of the code.

Which creates a visual map of the location like the one below.
