In the coming weeks Google will put logos for fast food chains, coffee shops, hotels and travel agents on its popular maps site.
Its rival, Telstra, is going a step further and is planning to serve up ads based on destinations people are searching for in its mapping product.
No doubt Bing has the same in mind. I wonder if there are plans to push advertising throught the API and on what terms and how publishers will be affected.
The've already had really extensive sponsor icons in Japan maps, but fewer sponsor icons appearing on U.S. maps.
Perhaps they're trying to master it in a foreign market before expanding it out in the U.S.?
