Support » Plugin: Google Pagespeed Insights » Can’t create api key

  • I am unable to create an api in the Google cloud platform using the documentation. How do I do this now in 2021?

    This changes often, but taking a look at the moment:

    1. Login to the Google developer console: https://console.cloud.google.com/ (create an account if you do not already have a google account)
    2. Go to ‘library’ and search for ‘PageSpeed Insights API’
    3. Click ‘Enable’ on the pagespeed insights API. (this will say ‘Manage’ if you’ve already previously enabled it)
    4. Go to your ‘APIs & Services’ Credentials page. I got there by clicking the hamburger menu in the top left of the page. (screeshot: https://cloudup.com/cZlAvVGtMiD)
    5. Click the ‘Create Credentials’ button from the top of the page, and select ‘API key’
    6. An API Key should pop up right away. I recommend you do testing with this API key before putting in place any restrictions, as I’ve found the restrictions are often incompatible with the Pagespeed Insights API

    I hope this helps.
