Embed Your Google Virtual Tour Onto Your Website
Posted By:  Joe Danzer
Thursday, June 23, 2016

The easiest method to embed your Google Virtual Tour into your website is with a free Google Chrome plugin,  Embedder for Google Business View™.

Click Here to install the Google Chrome Extension.

Easily embed Google Business View virtual tours on your own website
This extension makes it easy to embed your Google Business View virtual tour on your website. The extension creates the embed code that can be copied and pasted into your own HTML code.

When you visit your Business View tour on Google Maps, the Embedder icon will appear in the address field of Chrome. Click this to view the embed code.

After you have installed the Embedder for Google Business View™ you will see a new icon in the top right hand corner of your screen in Google Chrome.

Note: This new tool only works when you are inside of a Google Virtual Tour.

To embed a Google Virtual Tour into your website follow the instructions below.

1. Open Google Chrome Browser and go to www.maps.google.com

2. Search for your business and click on the virtual tour.

3. Choose the view in your tour that you want to embed into your website. (Note: the exact location, viewing direction, and zoom level is taken into account here so choose the exact spot in the tour that you want to share.)

4. Click the Embedder for Google Business View™ icon to open the options window.

5. Click the Embed button and the window will drop down with the code you need to put into your website. (Note: the code is in the form of an iframe to make it very easy to copy and paste the code into your website.)

6. Bonus: The Embedder for Google Business View™ has a few default window sizes that work well for most websites. You can also key in the exact size you want for your website by choosing the “custom size” option.

***BONUS***


Google has created an option to embed your virtual tour with their own tools. I still prefer the Embedder for Google Business View™ simply because it has a few extra features that are currently not available in the Google method yet.

If you prefer not to install the Embedder for Google Business View™ plugin or do not have Google Chrome then follow the instructions below to use the Google method.

1. Open Google Chrome Browser and go the url www.maps.google.com

2. Search for your business and click on the virtual tour.

3. Once the tour is active the business name will appear in the top left hand corner of the screen. Click the 3 vertical dots next to the business name and choose the “Share Embed Image” option.

4. Copy the code and paste it into your website development software.
