Bookmark Google Maps Search Results

If you find an interesting local business in Google Maps, you can add it to a custom map for future reference. The process has been simplified and Google Maps added the option to bookmark search results. You'll find stars next to local search results, locations, user-created maps:

To find the list of bookmarks, click on "My Maps" and scroll to "Starred items". For now, the bookmarks aren't public and you won't find them in a user's profile.

The starred items are also added to Google Bookmarks, without any label or annotation. If you remove the pages from Google Bookmarks, the corresponding items from Google Maps are deleted.

  1. I'm pleased to see that such quality things are made in the IT bussiness, makes me to forget microsoft's hungry for money with their low quality services.

  2. This is a great idea.You can also bookmark the pages you looked for in google map..Well Google is coming up with great ideas.

  3. That's a very good feature, but I don't see many user-created maps, at least not in the UK

  4. I think Google is making money and having fun, why should they stop?
