An associate once told me that by linking (yes, just a link) to Google Maps on the homepage of a site he noticed that his SEO legitimately improved with Google search rankings.
I have had it implimented for a couple of years and it does seem to help; which means it is noticed by Google.
Now I'd like to add a link to Bing Maps for the same potential. However, I'm wondering if Google and Bing will play fairly together.
Has any testing been done to see if one of them drop rankings when the other is noted on a page?
PS. We have an excellent ranking with Google in a competive area. I'd hate to lose the many years of work that has gone into this ranking - so I am moving slowly. gw
