Setting up your Google Places and Maps API Key
– Start on your console page.
– Follow along with the video below.
– Finally, Google now requires an active billing account. If you don’t have one, set it up here…(don’t worry, they are currently giving $200 free credit a month). Check your API Billing account here…
Note: If you get an error when trying to download your reviews, use this link by replacing the YOUR values with your API Key and Place ID to see exactly what Google is returning. It should show a json page with your reviews listed at the bottom.
