4. Name your app, enter your email address, and select “Web application” for Application Type.
5. Important: Enter the URL of your primary network site in the field marked Authorized Redirect URL.
6. Also under APIs & auth, select Create New Key.
7. Choose “Browser key,” click create.
8. Copy the Google Client ID, Google Client Secret, and Google API keys generated for you.
