Publishing will make your map available on the internet with a unique URL, just like a small website or article. The mind map will be indexed by search engines, and it will appear in your public map channel. Once it is public, you can also embed it in a website or blog.
By default, people on the internet can view your public maps but not edit them in any way. They can zoom in and out, open and close branches, read notes you may have attached or click on links you may have added to topics.
How to Publish a Mind Map
Anybody with a MindMeister account can create and publish mind maps, independent of their subscription model. Take a look at the short demo video below to see how it works:
You can publish your map from your dashboard or from your map editor. To publish from the map editor please follow these three simple steps:
1. Click the Share button in your map footer to open the sharing dialog.
2. Click the Publish map... button. Once you've confirmed with 'OK' in the next dialog, your mind map is public. You can now view it in your public map channel.
3. It's up to you now to make the map popular by sharing it on your website, blog and social media. The Sharing settings dialog is explained in detail here.
