    Hello,

    two questions regarding the Google Maps API:

    1. The free version of the API is limited by 25000 requests a day. But what happens if this limit is reached?

    2. What counts as request? At example: Loading a Map with 100 markers – Only the loading of the Map including all pins (icons) is one request or 100 requests?

    Second example: Open a two markers to read the descriptions into the info-flyout. We are dealing here with two requests?

    Do you have some inofrmation about the counting of the requests?

    Hi there,

    Thank you so much for getting in touch with us.

    Please find my responses below:
    1. Once the request limit is reached the map will stop displaying, and a message will be displayed within the map container stating that something went wrong. That being said the odd’s of reaching 25000 requests a day are quite slim as requests as highly optimized in WP Google Maps.
    2. In your example of 100 markers being loaded on the map page, only a single request is made. This is because we only request the map once, and then place markers on the map.

    A request is measured by the amount of time the page is viewed in a day.

    I hope this helps?
