Google Maps tutorial - API Key issue


Recommended Posts

Hi over there,

I'm trying to add a google map to a really simple .html file (locally stored), just to understand how it works. I've just copied a code snippet found on w3schools, here it is:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<h1>My First Google Map</h1>

<div id="googleMap" style="width:100%;height:400px;"></div>

function myMap() {
var mapProp= {
    center:new google.maps.LatLng(51.508742,-0.120850),
var map=new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("googleMap"),mapProp);

<script src="https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=YOUR_KEY&callback=myMap"></script>


and pasted an API key I've generated and enabled on a google account. I pasted the key over "YOUR_KEY". So basically my file contains exactly the code above, the only difference consist in the API key instead of "YOUR_KEY". 

Can anyone tell me where I may be wrong? 

Thank you in advance, really.
