Google registers ‘Maps Matter’ domain names

Maps Matter

With changes being released for Google Maps like business interiors in Street View, it appears an online marketing campaign might be in store for the search engine giant.

On October 28, 2011, Google registered a handful of domains like MapsMatter.com and WhyMapsMatter.com.

While neither MapsMatter.com nor WhyMapsMatter.com resolve to a web page as of yet, given the timing of the registrations coinciding with enhancements to Street View and the plug being pulled on unlimited access to its API, it’s safe to say Google is planning to unveil something soon on the new web addresses.

Here’s a look at the WHOIS record for MapsMatter.com, registered through the brand protection company MarkMonitor.
