How do I add local businesses from Google Places (or similar) onto a Google Map?

I am trying Google Maps (for some reason not listed on this form) and need to add markers for local businesses (eg restaurants, schools) onto the map. Is this possible?

    Hello Robbie,

    Thanks for posting on the forums. Welcome to the community.

    I am trying Google Maps (for some reason not listed on this form)

    I have corrected that, but to make sure that is not an issue somewhere, how did you create this thread ? Using your Dashboard plugin ?

    and need to add markers for local businesses (eg restaurants, schools) onto the map. Is this possible?

    You can insert Google Maps in your directory listings and when you create a map for a listing, just associate the map with that post (Advanced settings when you create the map)

    Then using the instructions here : https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/wordpress-google-maps-plugin/#usage

    You can create a mashup of maps.

    I hope that helps. Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Cheers
