Google Map API : So far, Iran has experienced a lot of sanctions on Google, but generally more general services such as Gmail, Google Map and … have been less targeted by Google’s sanctions against Iran.
Now, contrary to our expectation, we are seeing the disconnection of the Iranian sites (which have domains ir) with the Google Map service. In fact, when we refer to websites with domains, we encounter an error with the following meaning:
The website or application is blocked due to incompatibility with the Google Copy Code.
Although Google has not yet provided an explanation of this issue, it is a fingerprint to Google’s boycott against Iran. However, we should wait to determine the cause of the problem.
This may be the only problem that may be resolved within the next few hours or whether Google really has boycotted Iran.
Earlier, Google had announced that since June 11, all developers must have a billing account to access Google Apps APIs, which also require a credit card.
Google has blocked some Iranian sites and software due to sanctions by the Google Map API
In a nutshell, I have to say that the API, which stands for the Application Programming Interface, is the programming interface, the interface between a library or the system and applications that they are requesting to service. (Wikipedia) You can use the Google Map API on your website or service to use and use Google Map Mappings within your website.
Now, according to the director of SEOal, from yesterday, the connection between Iranian sites using the Google Map API API was discontinued by Google. This disruption has caused the breakdown of parts of many startups. Jadi Mirmirani also wrote on Twitter:
This implies a two-way boycott, on the one hand, problems from the inside and, on the one hand, problems from the outside, which makes it harder for the developers of Iran to continue to work. One of these limitations is the failure to provide Alexa services to the ir domains that are older than this new problem. Maybe I can say I can go to Alexa, but really, can a service that uses the Google Map API to say that?
