    A GEO sitemap is also known as a KML sitemap, if you google this you will find how to build one, its really easy I've already done it.

    Once you have your KML sitemap you then then to create an xml sitemap and include your kml sitemap in there (it does have extra tags within the xml sitemap called GEO).

    Once you have both of these go to google webmaster tools and submit the xml sitemap - not the kml sitemap. Google will then see the KML sitemap through your xml sitemap and assign it GEO status and then hopefully will add you to Google Earth and Google Maps - I hope this helps

    I have just started a new post in the google section asking if anyone has had any experience with kml sitemaps, see - http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=1142060

    What is a Geo Sitemap?

    Google Geo Sitemaps is an extension of the Sitemap protocol that enables you to publish geospatial content (geo content) to Google, in order to make it searchable in Google Earth and on Google Maps.

    With Geo Sitemaps, you can tell Googlebot about your geo content, rather than waiting for us to discover it "in the wild". While we cannot guarantee when or if your geo content will be added to our GeoSearch index, we are continuously working to improve the coverage, freshness and quality of our index.

    There are several formats for specifying geo content, including KML and GeoRSS. Google currently supports both of these formats, and we plan to add support for more popular geo formats in the future.

    You create and add Geo Sitemaps in the same way as you create regular Sitemaps.

    Hi cyvas,

    Go to http://www.geositemapgenerator.com and click on "Start" after that fill all the fields required and click on the step 2, fill all the fields there as well and click click continue.

    After you complete both steps you will have the page to generate the geositemap and KML.

    Enjoy!

    Sorry to dig up kind of an old post but I wanted to clarify the confusion for anyone who finds this in a google search, GEO, is short for GEOgraphical location, so a GEO sitemap will tell google where to find geographical information pertinent to your location. it is not an acronym like SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization.

    Sitemap is an XML file with defined structure. It contains information about all the pages of the website. All above seek engines accommodate a way to abide sitemap files. Google, for example, uses Webmasters Tools as a abode area you can abide sitemaps. You can also add images, videos, code and geo information to the sitemap file. This way you can inform Google, Yahoo and Bing with all the stuff you think is worth indexing.
