Geotagging

WordPress.com allows you to geotag your posts and pages, which means you can attach a physical location to them. Geotagging comes in handy for posts about a particular location, such as your latest restaurant review, photo gallery from last week’s vacation, or travel essay.

Adding a location

When you’re creating a post or page, look for the “More Options” module on the left hand side of the screen. Keep in mind that this feature is exclusive to the classic editor on sites that have no plugins or third party themes installed.

The geotagging option is located under “More Options”

Clicking Get current location will locate your location and automatically geolocate your post. It only works if your browser or smartphone are location-enabled:

Post geolocated automatically

Post geolocated automatically

Or, you can manually type in an address:

Post geotagged with a manual search

Post geolocated with a manual search

The location is added to your post or page in various machine-readable formats: geo microformat, geo.postion meta tag and ICBM meta tags, and GeoRSS and W3C geodata in feeds.
