Google Maps API

Server key
server key allows you to monitor the usage of the Google Maps Geocoding API.

Browser key
browser key allows you to monitor the usage of the Google Maps JavaScript API.

Google Maps no longer allows requests that doesn’t include API keys and has an active billing account. You can lower your monthly bill by disabling a couple of options that will reduce the number of API calls.

Validate API keys
This will test the provided API keys and show whether the Google Geocode API returned the expected data or an error message.

Map language
You can set a fixed language for the textual information on the map.

If you leave it empty, the browser’s preferred language setting is used, which is recommended.

If you have a multilingual site and you want to switch the map language dynamically, then you can do this with the wpsl_gmap_api_params filter.

Map region
This will bias the geocoding results towards the selected region.

If no region is selected the bias is set to the United States.
