I would like to send clients a travel advice (url) but I don’t know how to do that with the Maps Service. Luckely the website of the ‘Nederlandse Spoorwegen’ offers a possibility to do what I want to do (with some Google Apps Script).
For our fans in the Netherlands a nice little snippet from Mariette Timmer that builds a custom url to use with the Nederlandse Spoorwegen travel advice site. To solve this Mariette uses the Google Maps geocoder to convert an address into lat/long for needed for Nederlandse Spoorwegen.
You can bring the power of Google Maps to your Google Sheets using simple formulas with no coding. You don’t need to sign-up for the Google Maps API and all results from Google Maps are cached in the sheet so you are unlikely to hit any quota limits.
Great post from Amit Agarwal using the Maps Service for Google Sheets custom functions.
Use Google Maps formulas inside Google Sheets to calculate distances, travel time, get driving directions, look up postal codes with reverse geocoding and more!
The post includes all the source code and has some great examples using the V8 syntax.
Building up a solid link profile is a cornerstone of local SEO, but it can be a time consuming and tedious process. In this post I’ll show you how to automate this quickly and efficiently with Google Sheets.
This Google Sheets tool uses Apps Scripting to combine the Google Maps and Mozscape APIs into an all-in-one link finder. Type in a search term and a lat/long, and the tool will find the top Google maps results. Once we have those results, we can discover who is linking to them, and produce a “link intersect” report.
