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.

The instructions from this guide are referring to the WP Admin dashboard. You can get to this dashboard by clicking WP Admin under My Site(s), or by adding /wp-admin to the end of your site’s url (e.g.: example.wordpress.com/wp-admin)

Adding a Location

When you’re creating a post or page, look for the Add Location button above the editor. Keep in mind that this feature is exclusive to the classic editor on sites that have no plugins or third-party themes installed.

Click Add Location and search for your location:

Searching for a location

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.

The location will be visible on your posts (although this varies by theme):
