Business Centre/Office Building: how to display correct name in embedded map

Hi!

My name is Sandra and I would like to know whether it is possible to change the look on the display of the map section when embedding on a website. 

The issue: We are running a Business Centre with about 150 companies under one roof. Whenever we enter our address on a third party platform in order to display an embedded map, the pin does not direct to "German Centre Singapore", but to the name of one of our tenants, "WABCO". Although we like all of our tenants very much :), it would be great if we could have an influence on this. 

 

An example may be found on the Singapore Online Booking platform: peatix:http://peatix.com/event/237429/edit

The same thing unfortunately happens when embedding the map on our new website (Typo3, not online yet).

 

Would be great if anyone had an idea.

Thank you all in advance!

Best regards, Sandra

@German C

 

its not really a GoogleMyBusiness related question rather on of GMaps.

Nevertheless here my answer:

 

Use for your website this embedding code for the "German Centre"

 

<iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d3988.751855294987!2d103.74430221475396!3d1.324..." width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

 

It will create you an maplet like below:

It's all extracted from this GMaps link: https://goo.gl/maps/mJe8trY7uXS2

Hi Helmut,

thank you very much for your support.
Sure, the embedding code would solve the issue, but unfortunately this is
not the solution I was looking for (as I cannot force 3rd party providers
to use it :-))

Apologies for using the wrong forum, I will try it somewhere else.

Best regards,

Sandra
