When you pin a Place Pin, it wont automatically link it to your map. So when youre done pinning new pictures to your board, make sure to go back to your Place Board and add the location for these pins.

You can see the pins that havent been mapped yet have a + sign instead of a number. To map the pin, click on the +, type the name of the place and click Map it. The + sign will change to a number and show up on the map.
