Best Free Google Map Plugin for WordPress

Sometimes, one requires Google Map to be displayed in blog posts or page to display location of a place, tourist destination etc. Once, I also had to search a lot to find very easy to use Google Map Plugin for my WordPress blog and found many! But then, I was not satisfied with many of them and ended of installing many Google Map Plugin for my blog!

Finally, after doing many trials, I have finalised two Google Map plugin whom I found very easy to install, configure and use in my blog pages, posts.

They are :

1. Comprehensive Google Map Plugin by Alexander Zagniotov

2. WP Google Maps by WP Google Map

Unfortunately #2 WP Google Maps has a pro version which allows you to create multiple maps, but the free one allows you to create just one map! But the pro version costs just $14.99 for three domains, that is $5 per domain, unlimited number of maps!

But if some one wants to go with completely free Plugin, like me, use #1 Comprehensive Google Map Plugin. While #2 seems to easier to configure and use in posts/pages, #2 is not difficult! It may require reading of some 100 lines of English texts and you will be creating many codes for Google Maps for showing your desired location!

I hope this list of just two WordPress Google Map Plugin will help people save time looking for Google Map Plugin!

    I’d like to draw your attention also to my mapping plugin “Leaflet Maps Marker” – it allows you to pin, organize & show your favorite places through OpenStreetMap, Google Maps, Google Earth (KML), Bing Maps, APIs or Augmented-Reality browsers. A demo and free download can be found on
