Google recently announced that a range of new ad features would soon be coming to Google Maps.

There are four main ad features that are new to Google Maps. They are Promoted Pins (which can include branding and logos), in-store promotions, customisable business pages, and a local inventory search function. These ads will be shown in Maps results on the Google Maps app, the desktop and mobile versions of the Google Maps site, and on Google.com Expanded Map results.
