Google Searches Redirect to Your Website
We've just released an enhancement that has significant ramifications for anyone who has a CommunityWalk map embedded in another website, especially professional maps.
Now, when you have a professional map embedded in your site, if someone does a search on Google for one of your map locations, CommunityWalk will redirect them to the page on your site where the map is displayed and will make that location display on the map.
We've embedded a sample professional map above. If you were to do a search in Google and one of the results was for a location on this map it would redirect your here and select that location on this map. Try it out with this search for the Turin Airport in Italy. Click on the first result and you'll be redirected back here with the airport selected on the map above.
Change How Your Map Displays with Different Links
Now you can also change the way your map displays without touching your code snippet. If you link to a page on your website that has a CommunityWalk map embedded on it (any version, professional or free, except the free blog version), you can include instructions for the CommunityWalk map in your url. A few examples are below. They will link back to this page with the map displaying something different.
