How Do You Turn Off PPC Ads on Google Maps

A WebmasterWorld thread asks if there is a way to avoid showing your ads on Google Maps. Now before beginning there are two types of ads displayed on Google Maps. There are the ads within the maps (Google Local ads) and the ads on the left hand side based on keyword search (normal sponsored search ads). I believe this member wants to know how to exclude his ads from showing on the sponsored search part, being that you have to manually create an ad for the Google local ads.

Honestly, I really do not know how you can turn off those ads. I don't think there is a way. But I do see that some advertisers feel those types of leads are produce "quite a significant amount of "junk"" that creates "lots of noise."

Just an other shout out to Google to help advertiser have more control over their campaigns.
