The benefits of multiple locations are obvious if you need them. The benefits of the map preview are not so obvious but very real. KML files require a mapping API to generate the lat long info included in the file. Sometimes the information from the API, even from the same map provider, renders the location differently than reality or differently than the public mapping program. It has always been a good idea to check the KML file’s lat-long accuracy by loading it into something like Google Earth to be sure that it pins the locations correctly. Now Geo Sitemap Generator previews the pins on a Map for you when you go to download your files saving you a necessary step.

Geo Sitemap Generator Adds New Features
by Mike Blumenthal
Your tool would be great if you could add multiple URL’s.
For example, I’m looking to make a KML sitemap for a company that has over 90different locations nationwide. Each one of these locations has its own page within our website (e.g. mysite.com/region/region1 and mysite.com/region/region2 etc) – so ideally i’d like to add a URL related to each region on each pinpoint.
Is there a way to do this? At the moment all i can see is the ability to add only one URL – which then covers every location.
Any help would be much appreciated.

The tool does allow you to add multiple locations
I also find it interesting and useful, just like Jan Willen said and I’ve tried to apply for a few sites but I have the same error in GWT after submitting. The error is: Invalid XML tag
This tag was not recognized. Please fix it and resubmit. Onestly, I don’t know how to fix this. Does anybody have an idea?
Thanks a lot!
