How to integrate Google Maps into WordPress?


If you want to integrate Google Maps into a commercial WordPress site, you will need an API key. In general, this is free. It only incurs a monthly fee if your site is particularly busy and attracts thousands of visitors each month, or if you want to use more than just a card. This API key can be obtained by Google Cloud Platform Console. On this interface, create your project and then choose the appropriate product. If you want to embed Google Maps on your WordPress site without a plugin, choose the option “ Maps Embed API “. With a plugin, the right choice is “ Maps Static API “.

It is also possible to select several products or modify them later. Then activate the chosen product via the option ” Enable “. You will then find your API key under “ Credentials “. This is where you can also set restrictions for the key, so that no one can use it for other pages. If you embed a map on your site, insert the key in the code or drop it in the corresponding plugin. If your site is not intended for sale, there is no need to try to have your own API key.
