New Charges For Google API's

Google has recently updated their charges for their API's meaning certain tools such as google maps which are embedded into websites may incur charges. They do also provide with you with credit to your account each month so if you only use basic API's which have basic or no charges then it still shouldn't cost you anything. However if you're site uses more interactive elements of google maps and other services and you have high volume's of website traffic then this could start to add up. I have been working through the sites I run making changes towards the basic API's which still provide the services needed but won't cost my clients extra money. Below is an example of an embedded google map with some additional coding to make it fully responsive.
