For this of you who’ve tried to add an address in the Divi Map Module but keep getting the error message “Geocode was not successful for the following reasons: REQUEST_DENIED”, you’re not alone. This is an issue that has caused me much frustration. The solution to the problem, however, is actually quite easy.
Log into your Google Cloud Platform dashboard and click on ENABLE APIS AND SERVICES. From there, search for “Geo”. This should bring up the following:
Now that all that’s in place, go back to your Divi Maps Module and enter the address and hopefully this time, it’ll work.
And That’s a Wrap
And there you have it folks, with the Geocoding and Geolocation APIs enabled, the Divi Map Module should just work.
Now, if only Elegant Themes would allow the Map Module to work with other mapping providers who don’t require billing details to be in place before you can use their services.

If you’ve found Divi Notes to be useful in your journey, I’d appreciate it if you would consider supporting me using the form below.
now it asks you to pay
Is it not just asking for billing details? Google gives you a $200 credit each month which you’re highly unlikely to exceed on most websites.
thanks. it was really wracking my brain to work this one out so was a relief when you described it as easily as you did! Its all good so thanks again!
Hi there, now my screen has gone blank! I had the map on screen and when I refreshed it disappeared! Google Maps not very friendly at all!
Hello, I seem to have it working with reduced restrictions. Got it working but will need to look into this further another day. thanks anyway for your help. Your notes got me 95% there which really helped!. thanks.
Thanks a lot.
I was really struggling with this, could not understand what was causing issues, and following this worked like a charm. Thank you for posting this.
2020 update: After all this, you also need to give google cloud console your billing info – it activates a free trial with monthly credit apparently. i didnt even read it because i was already so frustrated.
Google gives you a $200 credit every month. I’ve got quite a few sites and a vehicle tracking system running the same API at the moment I’m only using about $100 of that credit.
THANK YOU! I was going nuts trying to figure this out after the map on our site quit working, and this was the final piece of the puzzle the helped me get it sorted!
Help me, My site couldn’t load google map although I attempted to add your Google API KEY to any Google Maps JS file that has properly been enqueued. See: http://dichvuuytin.com
I still got same your problem, ive done everything possible to make it works but no luck
i also had the problem, just embed the map with code.
Thank you kind person, you really saved me from a life of frustration here.
I’m still having issues, but I wanted to comment on the page layout you have… due to the adds I have only 1 third of screen to read – for context thats only 6 lines of text… I am struggling to follow the steps with having the pop up and such a small space to read…
