This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

What exactly do you want to display on your website? A map with a marker or what? – benregn Mar 30 '11 at 7:26

The Google Static Maps Wizard makes it easy to mark a location in a map & embed it in a web page. Google Static Maps API accepts inputs to generate a map through querystring values.

Google's Driving Directions gadget shows a map & also provides driving directions based on the address of your company's location that you can preset & the starting point specified dynamically by a customer.

You'll need to go over the Google Maps API.

You'll probably use a simple info window or simple marker (more examples).

This question may be better suited for Stack Overflow if you need help with the code.

The first thing to do is to add your company to Google Local through the Google Places interface http://google.com/places This way people will find it not only graphically through a user-defined placemark (which is actually what you were asking about, but really not what you want to do!) but also by searching Google.

And once it is added, you may use the embed code to add it to your website. You don't necessarily need to add it to places to have a marker and map added to your site (but I agree with msanford that's what you should do). Simply, you can search [address (business_name)] add then use the embed code for that result.
