How to Place Several Pins in Google Maps

Google Maps' default behavior is to place a new pin every time you do a search. However, in doing so, it erases your previous search pin. To place several pins in Google Maps, you have to create a custom map. From there, you can keep adding new pins without the old ones vanishing.
