Displaying Ads on CityGrid Places Detail Pages

I’m working through the feedback I received from the CityGrid partner account management team on my Hyp3rL0cal directory project. I want to make sure its as compliant as possible, so my developers can deploy as quick as possible, and get approved for revenue sharing.

When reading through the Usage Requirements and Term and Conditions, its easy to miss some of the details. One of the details that went over my head, was displaying ads on places details. When you make a detail call against the CityGrid Places API, one of the properties you get back is “display_ad”.

The “display_ad” field tells you whether a business is an advertiser on CityGrid network or not.  If a business is an advertiser on the CityGrid network you cannot show advertisements on their places page. You are only allowed to show advertisements for business who are not already part of the CityGrid network.

So make sure and check for the “display_ad” settng, because our partner acount management team knows how to check for this, and it will be one area you could possibly fail when being approved and become billable, sharing in revenue using the CityGrid Place API.
