When you move to a new town, you look for a lot of new connections to fulfill your needs. You need a new carpenter, a stationary, a new car mechanic, a new Doctor...and the list goes on and on and on. So if you want to solve your problems in mean time then you should go for internet shopping. Google maps are a great resource to use when advertising a location of business, or to determine what the neighborhood and street of a location will look like.

First of all you have to open a web browser and go to Google.com, then click on the option “Maps” at the top of the page. Next, type either the name of a business or an address into the search bar at the top of the page. It will be better to include a city and state if possible, to help narrow your results. After this you will find a list related to those keywords which have you searched, now click on “More Info” option and you will get a google map listing page. You can also type a nearby business name and an address at the same time to find a business close to that location.

Once you have pulled up a map of a business, address, or place of interest you will have the options of reading and writing a review, learning more information about the location, getting directions, searching for a nearby location, zooming in, saving the location to My Maps, and sending the information. There will also be information such as the address, phone number, and website of the location you searched for.

Users have some additional facilities on Google Maps Listings. They can view traffic, a simple map, a satellite map, and a terrain map. In satellite map, it's possible to view the map from a street view by dragging and dropping the little stick figure at the top of the zoom-in/zoom-out bar, or by clicking on a specific direction to see road at that stage of your trip. It is also possible to move up and down the street to see what the neighborhood looks like, simply click on the arrows in the center of the photo.

At the top right of your map listing you will see three options: Print, Send, and Link. Print will allow you to print a basic map of the location you entered. Send will allow you to send an email this listing to your friends. You will be able to send to multiple destinations and include a personal message. Link will provide you with a link that can be used in an email or instant message, or with HTML that can be used for a website.
