Make sure to include as much information as you can with the address.  postcode/zip help, and street address help even more.

When I did mine I stripped out almost all of the url garbage.
I kept the following parameters, output=embed, q=123 address st,city,state&z=16

if you have the coordinates in there, it is possible that you panned then clicked the embed link.

<iframe src='http://maps.google.nz?output=embed&q=123 test,city, state,&z=16' frameborder='0' scrolling='no' marginheight='0' marginwidth='0' style='width: 504px; height: 424px;'></iframe>
