Hi BaconFries,

I only loaded the maps today & already in Google webmasters tools they are giving a HTML suggestion about the googlemap pages.

They are saying they are missing Title Tags.

Is the best solution just to exclude these in the robots file?

note:......This is the map only page, not the actual page with all info, images & where the map actually appears.

I will see what I can do about adding <title></title> and maybe some meta tags into the html..

Ok, sounds good.

As a temporary measure I have just excluded them in the robots file.

Re: Google Maps API v3 marker displacement!

Post by Islander » Mon Mar 14, 2011 7:25 am

Hi BaconFries,

I'm having a displacement of the marker from the right coordinates while zooming out. Here's an example at http://www.mauritius360.com/test/googlemap.html
On full zoom in the marker placement is right on a place in the Bay. On zooming out you can see the marker drifting out of the island.

Hi BaconFries,

It's working correctly now. Many thanks for resolving this issue so fast.

By the way, is it possible to insert a hyperlink or image in the dialog box?

Yes you can... see reference below...I have noticed that using a image adds a scroll bar to the info window I will see what can be done to overcome this...
URL
<a href="http://www.yoursiteaddress.com/" target="_blank" style="text-decoration:none">showme</a><br/>
Email
<a href="mailto:enquiries@youremailaddress.com" style="text-decoration: none">email</a>

For example JOES BURGERS will work; JOE'S BURGERS will not.
Try this
JOE&rsquo;S BURGERS
