Get Geocode straight from Google Map

There are times where you have to find the geocode of one location on the earth, there are many sites that have this features, you can find them here. Now i found an easy way to find geocode straight from Google Map.

1) Go to Google Map
2) Search for the location, for example let's search for "Cavite, Philippines", the place where i studied ComSci.
3) On the top right, there is a Send button. Click that one.
4) On your message textbox you can find the string "sll=<lat>,<long>"
Example:
..../maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=cavite,+philippines&sll=14.480642,120.894729&sspn=0.002722,0.006974&ie=UTF8&t=h&g=cavite,+philippines&z=16&iwloc=addr>

There you go, hope it helps
