HubPages Get Google Maps

HubPages - Marks the Spot

HubPages is a self-publishing platform that lets anybody write about what they know and earn money from their original and topical content.

HubPages has added the option to embed a Google Map into a Hub page. HubPage members can now add points of interest to a map that are relevant to their Hub page. Each map gives readers the option to view additional walking, biking, or driving directions and, depending on the location mapped, readers can also view locations with Google Street View.

To launch the new 'map capsule' last month HubPages ran a competition for their members called 'HubPages Marks the Spot'. For the competition Hub pages had to be created that shared local information using HubPages’ new map capsule.

The Grand Prize Winner of the competition was this HubPage on Where to buy Limoges Porcelain in Limousin, France. This Hub page includes a number of Google Maps, each being used to show the location of porcelain factories and shops in Limousin.
