Bing Maps and Advertising RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Is it possible to put advertisements (Amazon, company/store
    product ads/newsletter signup,  paid placement ads) on the same page
    as the Bing maps mashup (outside the map) using the consumer API? I
    also was wondering if map markers, logos, and store pictures could
    appear on the (consumer API) map?

    Thank you very much.

  • I'm assuming you want to put advertisements on the consumer site. There are a lot of restrictions around this and unless the data is owned by you and realivent what ever Map App you create then chances are it won't be approved. So general advertisements for Amazon/store product ads/ newsletter signup will not be allowed. Also, if these types of advertisements are posted to the MSDN Forums or the Bing Maps Blog comments they will be removed and the account which posted them will be subject to being banned.
