    How to check if a website has a KML sitemap?

    Does anyone know how to check if your website has a KML sitemap? I used a word press KML generator but I have no idea if its working or not.

    You can usually find it on www.domainname.com/locations.kml

    Yeah and just to be clear, the sitemap is something different. There's the locations.kml file then there's something in the sitemap to point Google to the KML file. Personally I use a file titled geositemap.xml, but others may just add the KML file location to the regular sitemap.xml or whatever they've titled it. It doesn't matter.

    Just go onto the server and check the root folder for the proper files.

    They usually are in the root folder, but read the plugin documentation to see where the file is placed.

    When you used the word press KML generator, did it output any info to you? Did you have to download the file or did it provide a link to view the file? As was mentioned, it is usually in the form of www.yourdomain.com/locations.kml where you replace "yourdomain" with your actual site url.

    Re: How to check if a website has a KML sitemap?

    hi @Goku770

    just run the next search query on google:

    filetype:KML site:domain.tld

    in this way you can identify the KML file even if the file name is different than local.kml

    You could also discover the sitemap.xml file of the site and try to find the path to local.kml in it. You will find it as long as it is listed in the xml file and usually it should be.

    Or you can just try domain.tld/local.kml the way it was mentioned before
