    Recently Google quietly stripped off the support for Geo Sitemaps format from the Location Sitemaps, which site owners could submit to Google Webmasters Tools. If you have had KML Files and Geo Sitemaps tags in your Location Sitemap you would have seen the following errors message
    “Invalid XML tag”
    “This tag was not recognized. Please fix it and resubmit.”
    “Parent tag: url Tag: geo”

    You were not alone, the error started popping up way back in Feb 2012 and many webmasters noticed the issue in their Google Webmasters Tools Console. Susan Moskwa, Webmaster Trends Analyst at Google confirmed to Mike Blumenthal that while Google did drop support for geo-specific information in sitemap files they still allow users to submit KML files. So let us take a look at how its done.
