With this small trick, you can add a green indicator to any Google Map. Nothing mind-boggling, but as I couldn't find any reference to it in the forum... Here we go:

1. Go to Google Maps and double-click on the exact place you want the indicator to appear (the map will center on that spot).
2. Click on "Link to this page"
3. Search for &ll= in the URL and copy its value: e.g. 48.858168,2.294523
4. Paste the value you just copied in the Google Maps search field, and add some explanatory text between brackets – like this: 48.858168,2.294523(Nice view!)
5. Click on Search, and zoom to the appropriate level.
6. Done!
Example: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=48.858168,2.294523(Nice+view!)&z=19&t=k
