Important News

Important: To take advantage of this new functionality you will need to replace your current CommunityWalk code snippet with the one that is now on the CommunityWalk site.

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.

  • How can I tell if I put in the new code, in place of the old code, correctly? I deleted my old index.htm file and replace it with a new one which was a notepad file with the new code saved at index.htm.

    And do you just use the link to bubble url and it will link to my domain and not the communitywalk map?

  • Hi Scott,

    The easiest way to verify that the functionality is working is to do a search on Google for one of your markers. To guarantee that the CommunityWalk result displays you can do a search like " my marker text". Clicking on this link should bring you to your website with that marker selected on the map.

    We have a special method in place for determining where the map is displayed on your site, so it does not depend on anything you enter.
