Hi, I try to start learning about Services_Google of PEAR, and I install them in my server (I call: require_once '/home/tags/php/Services/Google.php';).

I search for some examples in the web, and all information tell, first I have to get a API key from google for use in PEAR - Services_Google.
In this site http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/idpl/11309262/com/php-pear-Services_Google-0.1.1-3mdv2009.1.noarch.rpm.html they tell me to go to http://www.google.com/apis/ .

I go there, to get the API key, but I see to much information.

So, somebody tell me the right URL for I get the API for I use in one of services that Services_Google (can be any API)?

I think you just get one Google API key and off you go - at least that has been my experience.

First get a Google Account

Then get an API key:

So, if I get API key in maps, I have access for all API services in google?

That's what I did. That is what I would try first.  Registration is required, but it is free.

 I think Google Analytics is different.
