    Error Submitting Geo Sitemap To Google Maps


    I created two files today using geositemapgenerator.com free tool to submit too google webmaster and getting some errors.

    Here are the errors I am getting with google webmaster sitemap submissions


    /geositemap.xml / Invalid XML tag / This tag was not recognized. Please fix it and

    /locations.kml / Unsupported file format / Your Sitemap does not appear to be in a supported format. Please ensure it meets our Sitemap guidelines and resubmit.

    It is hard to know exactly without looking at the sitemap. Better, though, instead of your tool use this one, and you should be fine: http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/
