Where Did Google Maps Saved Locations Link Go?

Google Maps LogoI had a very frustrating experience recently. I could not for the life of me find My Saved Locations on Google Maps. I knew they were still there, because when I started typing in the search box, Google started suggesting them. But I couldn’t find the link to edit/view all of them.

Although there were people that actually lost their saved locations, this was not the problem I was experiencing. I just couldn’t find the freakin’ link! As an experienced computer geek, this was especially frustrating. After much searching, I finally found a blog post that informed me that the Google Maps saved locations feature had moved.

I was disappointed I had to resort to searching for the solution, rather than figuring out the link was in a little upsidedown triangle next to the search bar. In my defense, the Google Maps help was no help (it still mentioned the old location of the feature) and I had to resort to searching the web. Finally when I searched for something along the lines of “google maps saved locations link move“, I found the post on Search Engine Roundtable.

    No problem. It was driving me nuts too. It's one of those things that

    should be painfully obvious, but instead is just painful because you can't

    figure it out.
