[Pro] google map

Hi everybody!
I am trying to insert a google map in a site. The action requests a “site key”, but when I look for it, Google says it is no more mandatory. What can I do to have it working? Tried to create a new key, but it doesn’t work…

Thanx for helping!

I insert an HTML marker, and in here I paste the iframe code you get in the google map link, without using the key, because I had the same problem as you.

what do you use a key for? What is the interest of the key?

Google Maps used to require an API key whenever someone did so much as to show a Google Map on their site. They’ve relaxed that stance somewhat, and now only require it if you do custom access to the maps API.

If you include a lookup to find a location on the map in your site, or if you display a custom pin on the map, then you need a key. The key will be specific to the server that it is registered to, so if your www.example.com site has a map on it, then your otherhost.example.com site would need a different key. They use this to meter the amount of use any individual site places on the service. There is a certain very large number of requests per day that are free, beyond that you have to pay and pay.
