How to place a placemark on google map without my maps?

GreyHippo

I have a list of latitudes and longitudes and I have links to google maps using those latitudes and longitudes.

Example: http://maps.google.com/?ll=40.4,-80.1&spn=0.001815,0.003484&t=w&z=19

Is there a way I can incorporate a placemark into the link, so that when the user clicks the link it will take him to google maps and a placemark is added to the location?

Thanks

Found it, replace the "ll" with "q" and google will place a green arrow the coordinate value.

Quicksilver, I only want to send someone a list of links.
