Google has recently announced some changes to their Google Maps API. More specifically they have changed for which functionality in Google Maps they require API keys. This has a profound effect on our Local SEO plugin as that plugin allows you to easily embed maps with directions and/or store locator functionality. Unfortunately, Google made some breaking changes, so we urge you to update to our latest version (v 3.3.1) as soon as possible.
If you embed maps on your site, through our plugin or another one, you might run into issues where the maps won’t work:
If you have our Local SEO plugin but are not using the maps functionality, you’re really losing out. I would especially encourage you to use the store locator functionality if you have multiple locations.
This should be as easy as logging in and updating. But we know that this sometimes doesn’t work. If you go to our licenses page, you can enter the email address you bought the plugin with and we’ll send you new download links.
We can’t really help you there. Except that maybe now is a good time to change your maps plugin to our Local SEO plugin!
