MyGeoPosition is a great application to help you geo-code a single address. From my limited testing it seems very accurate.

Apart from its accuracy, the site offers a number of really useful facilities for geo-coding a position and for how you might then want to use the data:
  • Finetuning of the position using a drap & drop marker
  • Geoposition as float or in degrees
  • Setting an inaccuracy (~1m, ~10m, ~100m, ...) for data protection reasons
  • Automated creation of geo-metatags for websites and weblogs
  • Automated creation of geotags for websites, weblogs and images
  • Automated creation of kml files (Google Earth)
  • iGoogle gadget for quick geocoding from your personal landing page
  • Slim design, quick loading process
As well as all these features the site returns a website url so it is possible to create a simple link to an address. If you don't want to link to MyGeoPosition, that's covered as well, as MyGeoPosition creates links to the location on Google Maps, Microsoft Live Local and Yahoo Maps.

The site is available in English, German, Dutch and Bulgarian.
