I downloaded this plugin recently and installed it, but I’m having trouble getting the API key. I followed the instructions included in the plugin but now the Google API console appears to have changed. After creation the project I look on the left for the API Access section (which I think is titled “Credentials” now) and I have to create an OAuth or Public API Access key. I tried to create a Public API Access Key but it asked for information which I wasn’t sure of (referrer).
Any tips on how I can get this working? I emailed Matt already and he suggested that I post here.
I created my key and download the key, I see that there is a footprint in my account where I created the key as well.
I copied and pasted that into the portal in the plugin it said it saved it the lights were green 🙂 Then I went to another tab
and low and behold it told me that the key entered appeared to be invalid? What’s up with this? I followed the instructions
to the dime. PageSpeed Insights API is where I generated the key so I’m assuming this had to be correct?
