In the above example, the error is “Referer not allowed”, but could be one of a few different errors.

Solution 1:

A general solution that works for most users is to edit your Google Maps API key settings and remove any restrictions:

  1. Look up an existing key to edit it:
  2. Select your existing API key and click on your key name
  3. Under “Key Restrictions” make sure it’s set to “None”
  4. Click on the “API Restrictions” tab and make sure none of the maps features are selected from the drop down menu.
  5. Save the settings.

Solution 2:

Alternatively, you can just create a new key.  Be aware that you are now required to enter a valid payment method.
