Have you taken a look at the new Google Maps? BIG change! We fared pretty well with our photos and reviews. If you don't have any google reviews, now's the time to start working on them!

It's like a new version of Windows. Nothing seems improved, just everything moved around where you have to search to find it.

So far I can't find anything in the new Street View, like how to embed a view into a website.

You used to be able to get a short-link to a view with a click. Now it looks like you have to copy the URL of the view then go shorten it yourself using bitly or http://goo.gl/

I just tried to locate an address and then get directions to it. Sigh. Everything is hidden.

But, your comment makes me wonder if my map on my website works! Or on my directions page.

OK, answer is yes. The old map goes to the new map page and immediately shows the box to enter your address to get to my place.

I have to have a Google account now to see a map?

Odd. I keep getting a login page.

OK, I just did an address and it popped up a tour using the maps but I could click out of it.

Here's something I have been trying to fix for awhile but cannot figure out how to do it...get rid of photos from 10 years ago! They are not listed in my mgmt account so I can't delete them. I have tried adding new photos but they don't show up. I know these are photos I took as they are 'staged'.

Maybe once I get the Google Places problem solved I'll be able to figure this out.
