how to insert google map on website




I want to use below code for my google map, which is posted on internet and easy to understand, but it doesn't works. I hae get API key but when I replace the original key, I don't know which part of code I need to modified. how to get a GLatlng cooridinates cooresponding with my API key.

  1. <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  2. "http://www.w3.org/TR...tml1-strict.dtd">
  3. <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
  4. <head>
  5. <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
  6. <title>Google Maps Javascript API Example</title>
  7. <script src="http://maps.google.c...v=2&key=abcdefg"
  8. type="text/javascript"></script>
  9. <script type="text/javascript">
  10. //<![CDATA[
  11. function load() {
  12. if (GBrowserIsCompatible()) {
  13. var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById("map"));
  14. map.setCenter(new GLatLng(37.4419, -122.1419), 13);
  15. }
  16. }
  17. //]]>
  18. </script>
  19. </head>
  20. <body onload="load()" onunload="GUnload()">
  21. <div id="map" style="width: 500px; height: 300px"></div>
  22. </body>
  23. </html>

I think I only need to replace this two parts in red color, is there any more place that I should modified.


I think this is the simple way that I could use google map on my website. pls come up with better ways if you could. thanks.
