Google Maps ads will no longer require AdSense for search

Yes, on April 18th there is going to be a change to how search ads are going to be purchased on Google Maps. The product is no longer going to be part of AdSense for search, meaning that location extension ads are going to be a requirement in order to show ads on Google Maps.

If your clients aren’t running location extensions but wish to continue having a paid presence on Google Maps, be sure to get these extensions implemented in preparation for April 18th!

Nothing that can be shared externally at the moment I'm afraid @Michael V. I'd suggest keeping your eyes peeled on the official AdWords blog on the 18th.
