Google is not defined

I am following the steps of making ion-google-place here at but as I go deeper I face error; Google is not defined… how can I fix this? thanks…

like you see it is based on google maps --> so you need to include the google lib on your own with your own api key.

For the geolocation service to work, you’ll need to have Google Maps javascript API somewhere in your HEAD tag: <script src=""></script>

I do have <script src=""></script> in my head tag

before ionic and your code?

here is my index.html

    <!-- cordova script (this will be a 404 during development) -->
    <script src="cordova.js"></script>

    <!-- your app's js -->
    <script src="js/app.js"></script>
      <!-- <ion-nav-bar class="bar-positive">
    </ion-nav-bar> -->
      <ion-nav-view animation="slide-left-right"></ion-nav-view>



even if i place the script anywhere still error shows

even if I use this still google is undefined… I don’t know where I mess up my code…
