YouTube API Key won't work: "Requests from referer are blocked"

You Tube recently expired my API key, so I proceeded to create a new one according to your instructions at, however no matter how I restrict or don’t restrict it, I keep getting the following error message in my page: YouTube responded with an error: Requests from referer are blocked.
¿What does this mean?

Here are the steps we suggest:

  1. Log in to the Google Developer’s Console
  2. Click the “Credentials” tab on the left navigation bar
  3. Under “API keys”, select the key you’re currently using with TubePress
  4. Under “Application restrictions”, ensure that “None” is selected
  5. Clear the system cache

Give that a try and let us know how it works for you?
