Why embed our maps?

Our maps help your guide rank higher on Google and be more useful to readers.

Maps keep readers engaged and on the page, lowering your bounce rate (used by Google for ranking purposes)
Our maps are lightning fast: they take 75% less bandwidth than Google My Maps, a common alternative, and keep your site's PageSpeed high.

Frequently asked questions

Is Wanderlog's map free?

Wanderlog's map is 100% free, forever. When planning our own travels, we've always thought that maps are a huge help, so want to make sure it's accessible to as many writers as possible.

What's in it for Wanderlog?

Our maps include our logo and a link back to Wanderlog to introduce our brand to more travelers. More broadly, the easier it is for travelers to plan on the web, the more they'll do so, so we're invested in making the online travel info easier-to-use with maps.

Will our content be duplicated on Wanderlog?

No: our maps are marked as not to be indexed by search engines with a "noindex" tag, so they will not recognize the maps as duplicates of the content of your blog post.

Can you help us make a map?

We can definitely walk you through it or make one as a sample! Give Peter and Harry, the co-creators of Wanderlog, a shout at with a link to your blog post, and we can give it a try!
