More Google Maps on Multiple Domains

More Google Maps on Multiple Domains

I have 2 pages on a web site using Google maps that are being accessed through 2 different domain names. I have read the other solutions to get this to work using PHP, but these sites are on a Windows-based file server.

The pages are:
contact-us.html
contact-us.html

specialized-programs.html
specialized-programs.html

Google suggests the following code as a solution:

document.write([
'<script src="http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&v=2&key=', {
'domain1.com': 'apikey1',
'domain2.com': 'apikey2',
'domain3.com': 'apikey3',
'domainN.com': 'apikeyN'
}[window.location.host],
'" type="text/javascript"><\/script>'
].join(''));

but the question is, how do I implement this using the WebAssist generated Google maps code?

I have a test page at test.html but it does not work for either domain name

Thanks in advance for the help.

on your page, find the following code:
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&v=2&key=ABQIAAAAk6WzVKHquYCaO_uEcPQb2xRMTIbAIa0I9oiudhyvwpjmrmhyKxSz1WO5cbboFSJvQ1Y345MsYA6njg">/*wagmp*/</script>



and replace with the code from google.

Re: More Google Maps on Multiple Domains

That's what I did. The code I'm using is:

<script type="text/javascript">
document.write([
'<script src="http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&v=2&key=', {
'carringtonseniorservices.com': 'ABQIAAAAk6WzVKHquYCaO_uEcPQb2xRMTIbAIa0I9oiudhyvwpjmrmhyKxSz1WO5cbboFSJvQ1Y345MsYA6njg',
'carringtonseniorhealthservices.com': 'ABQIAAAAk6WzVKHquYCaO_uEcPQb2xR9ZuU-Q5Z2VfOwZ4Knk3bH4f3HHxRvlTCK4s7fX8PP57dmq2jGqKKxmQ'
}[window.location.host],
'" type="text/javascript"><\/script>'
].join(''));
</script>

...but it does not work on either domain name. The page is test.html

you need to add the www. version of the domain names to the script as well, the script is working if you visit:
test.html

because you specified the api key to use for the
carringtonseniorhealthservices.com

domain. you need to specify the api key to use for the:
www.carringtonseniorhealthservices.com

domain as well.

@ Jason Byrne,

Hi,

You seem to really know your stuff so I thought I would ask this:


What I do is I SEO websites and then rent the traffic to customers. In order to do so, I "import" their whole page through an include so that visitors actually think they are visiting my client's site.

This new client of mine has Google Maps installed on her site, which causes an error when the page gets imported into mine.

What we did do:

- make sure each other's domains are approved under the key's access following this structure:

*.web-success-maketing.com/*
*.acces411.ca/*



I then put this code on my page:

document.write([
'<script src="http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&v=2&key=', {
'web-success-marketing.com': 'AIzaSyBYRZu-ozTok0A2ktqihham77Ym2Yiu6Rk',
'www.web-success-marketing.com': 'AIzaSyBYRZu-ozTok0A2ktqihham77Ym2Yiu6Rk',
'acces411.ca': 'ABQIAAAAmfnmLtcTHrHhkpkNKRujrRRnRZM9i66V77rRaQmSxF8bpYq1RBQ2RLYMDfRCRcCPWBzO7serz8DfcA',
'www.acces411.ca': 'ABQIAAAAmfnmLtcTHrHhkpkNKRujrRRnRZM9i66V77rRaQmSxF8bpYq1RBQ2RLYMDfRCRcCPWBzO7serz8DfcA'
}[window.location.host],
'" type="text/javascript"><\/script>'
].join(''));



yet I still can't get this thing to work as I keep getting the error: This web site needs a different Google Maps API key. A new key can be generated at introduction.html#Obtaining_Key.


Now, I did ask my client to upgrade from v2 to v3, which she did so I'm a little perplexed about the v2 in the above error.

Also, on both our sites, both v2 and v3 are "on".


When I click ok, I get a message telling me Google deactivated the service because of an invalid key yet I did check both and they seem fine.


Here is a sample test page where you can see the whole code: test.php Please bear with the CSS error as it's nothing more than changing relative links to absolute ones which I'll do if I can get her page to load properly in my site...


thanks for your time!


Seb.

to the best of my understanding, the google API console does not accept wild card characters in the domain registration. you have to enter the entire domain with out trying to use wild card characters when generating the api key.

also I believe the API key is now optional, both under the V2 and Newer V3 api.

instead of trying use javascript to fudge the api key, leave it out altogether.
