I am wanting to embed google maps on my page. I know how to get the embed code and embed what they give you, but i see different ways google is embedded on sites. For example, what i want is to have a list of locations i pin pointed and when you click on it, it will show you which pinpoint it is at in the map. Hope this isnt confusing, any help is awesome. Thanks!
Thanks for replying. I know how to plot the multiple locations. I know how to embed that map onto my site, what i am looking for us how to embed that map with the list of locations on the side. So when you click on a location in the list, it will pop up inside the map. Know what i mean? Someone else said use API. I never did an API before....

Sorry it took me so long here.
Whomever said to use the Google Maps API to code your locations links on the side was a correct response.
However, unless you're already familiar with the Google Maps API (or any API programming) it will not do you much good unless you want to learn to code with it. There are some resources that Google provides developers such as this one @ http://code.google.com/ if you want to take a shot and do it on your own.
Otherwise, if you'd like, I'm happy to help, too.
Just connect with me via a friend request on the Creative Cow, or LinkedIN (best ways).
I'm no expert on the Google Maps API by any means, but I am familiar with custom coding, and develop for myself using various languages.
