I know pretty well how Google ads work, but I don't know how best
to combine this with a slippy map. That's why I'm asking if we
can think of a way to make it work. If I had a working method
already, I would present it.
Perhaps one way to address this problem is to include the words in
the URL. Look at a typical article URL from CNET,
What happens if I change the words in the "top directory" level?
I get the same article, of course. It doesn't matter what I write
there. It's only a trigger for search engines that index the URL
panning or zooming does an XML-RPC call to retrieve useful
keywords for the current coordinate, and refreshes the page with
a new URL containing the retrieved keywords? That would be
and under the slippy map, it would read "The map shows Linköping".
This is just one idea. Could it work? Any better ideas?
