Certainly, here is a detailed guide on the steps to activate the Google Maps API via Google Cloud Console and how to put it on your website WordPress.

  1. Creating a Google Cloud Console account

In order to activate the Google Maps API, you need to create an account on Google Cloud Console. To do this, go to the Google Cloud Console website and follow the instructions for creating an account. If you already have a Google account, you can use your login credentials to access Google Cloud Console.

  1. Creating a new project

Once you are logged into Google Cloud Console, create a new project. Select 'New Project' from the 'Current Project' drop-down menu at the top of the window, give your project a name, and select your billing account.

  1. Enabling the API

Once the project has been created, select 'API and Services' from the main menu and then 'Dashboard'. Click on 'Enable APIs and Services' and search for 'Google Maps' in the search bar. Enable the following APIs:

  • Google Maps JavaScript API
  • Geocoding API
  • Directions API
  • Places API
  1. Creating an API key

You now need to create an API key to make Google Maps work on your website. Go back to the API dashboard and select "Credentials". Click on "Create credentials" and then on "API key". Choose the type of key you wish to create, e.g. a server key or a browser key, and follow the instructions to configure your API key.

  1. Entering the API key on the WordPress website

After you have created your API key, you need to put it on your WordPress website to make Google Maps work. There are several ways to do this, but the easiest way is to use a plugin such as 'Google Maps Widget' or 'WP Google Maps'.

After installing and activating the plugin, log in to the plugin settings and look for the section on the Google Maps API. Enter your API key in the text box provided by the plugin and save your settings.

Alternatively, if you are using a customised theme or plugin that requires the use of the Google Maps API, you can insert your API key directly into the code. Insert your API key within the script tag in the HTML file of your theme or plugin. Usually, the Google Maps script link and API key are inserted in this way:

php
<script src="https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=YOUR_API_KEY'></script>

Be sure to replace 'YOUR_API_KEY' with your API key.

Be sure to check the prices and usage limitations of the Google Maps API on the Google Cloud Console website.
