Google Maps & WordPress – Free & Paid Plugins to Add Maps to Your Website

When Google maps was first introduced back in 2005, I remember thinking at the time it was quite strange – I saw Google as a search engine so wondered why they would add a maps application when there were other free options available back then. As I began to use it and see the improvements made over time, it has become indispensable to me – I’m sure I use it most days to find local businesses and I even use it for Sat Nav on my phone over the one built-in to my car.
