Charging for Google Maps

Posted by – March 20, 2012

More web sites incorporating Google Maps will have to start paying for the privilege, as Google announced last October it would start charging a service fee when the quarterly average number of map views exceeds 25,000 per day. Google was already charging the biggest users of the service fees that could run into six figures a year. This probably won’t effect small volume sites like mine, but some web developers are complaining and looking for alternatives.

My thanks to friends Andrew and Lou for the tip!
