MyGeoPosition.com will shut down on September 15th 2018. Forever? Who knows.
Google has changed its Google API pricing structure. Free map views were cut from 750.000 to 28.000 per month (-96%), the price of additional 1000 map views went up from $0.5 to $7 (+1300%). With the new structure, I'd have to pay x times as much as I earn via advertising per month. Hence, I sadly have to close this beloved project.
It has been a great time since the launch in 2007 and I really enjoyed this project. Rest in peace, MyGeoPosition.com!
just want to tell you a bit more about my latest application, which results from the following problem: Everytime I created a map / geotags for a customer's website, I had problems with quick & easy geocoding his position - especially when he was living in the countryside. Google Maps often has no accrurate geocoding for street numbers in the countryside or sends you completely into the nirvana.
Geocoding of worldwide addresses
Finetuning of the position using a drap & drop marker
Geoposition as float number or in degrees
Setting an inaccuracy (~1m, ~10m, ~100m, ...) for data protection reasons
Automated creation of geo-metatags for websites and weblogs
Automated creation of geotags for websites, weblogs and images
Automated creation of KML files (Google Earth)
iGoogle gadget for quick geocoding directly from your personal iGoogle landing page
Slim design, quick loading process
New: Enter a geocoded website's url and it's location will be displayed on the map :-D
At the moment, time this service is available in English, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Bulgarian, Hungarian, Chinese and Portuguese. Check "Language" to download a language file and to translate it. Of course we will state your name and add a backlink to your website :-)
Currently out of service
Every place on earth can be identified by two simple numbers, the Longitude and Latitude. Geocode your position right now and for free.
Add the following Geotags/Metatags to the HEAD-section of your website or weblog. By doing so, you will geo-tag your website and search-engines will recognize it's global position. You will probably get better rankings for localized search requests.
After adding the metatags, feel free to test the result: Just enter your website's URL into the lookup form above. Hit the button and find your geocoded position on the map!
If you want to tag your weblog or website, feel free to use the following geotags which are the de-facto-standard for geotagging.
A KML file defines a placemark in the Google Earth Software. Just take the following code and create a textfile from it, change it's extension from "txt" to "kml". - Or even easier: Just klick the button and download the kml file.
