I am having a bit of a dilemma. I have a post that lists all of the beaches of San Diego (there are 85) and links to a Google Map. I have written about almost all of them already, so that I will be linking any additional information. First off, would this be considered a canonical page? If so, would I have to specify this post as being canonical on every other 'beach- review' post?
Second, I am torn if I should have all of these maps open in a different tab? Or should I not have them open in a separate tab?
Thank you! This question has been bugging me for so long that I can not think straight.

Hey Colleen,

Sounds like you need an info window that opens as you mouseover a beach. Google searching "a wp Google maps builder for different location info windows" (without the quotation marks, of course) I discovered the following plugin shown in the screen print below.

There were other suggestions in posts offered in that search result should you find the plugin does not provide you with what you need.

Hope you find this helpful.

Triblu, do you think it is a better idea to have an individual map on the page for each beach, rather than linking each individually to Google Maps?

Hey Colleen,

Thought you meant that you did not like maps opening in a different tabs, so found you a solution... or so I thought.

Does this mean the plugin was not what you were looking for?

I think separate link to map for each beach. I don't think a map on each page, just a link attached to the name of the beach or "location."

I grow up in El Centro, my favorite beach was La Jolla, the park and cove was beautiful.

I was wondering if it is better to have each map open in a different tab or not. The plugin is exciting, and I appreciate the heads-up. I may end up using it on my website, but for this post, which lists 85 different beach map links as well as 85 different photos, it would be a bit too much.

I love La Jolla also David! Do you think that I should open them up in a different tab? Thank you

Try different tabs.
