    So my offline client got this email today and now he wants me to do it for him, I have no idea what this is? Is this even beneficial? From my understanding its meant for Google earth. This guy is talking about linking his website to his Google places using this KML file?

    Here is the email:


    > Unless you've been living under a rock, you know how important it is
    > to have a great Google maps listing and great reviews showing. I
    > don't mean, "oh Google has our address and phone number listed". I mean a good full profile.
    >
    > Here's a link to what a good maps profile should look like. [1]Just
    > click here to see one.
    >
    > This also needs to be linked to your site via a .kml file. Don't
    > worry if you don't know what that is, we can handle that for you.
    >
    > Contact me today and we'll get started on this project for you.

    Keyhole Markup Language. It's a file or files you create on your site that mark your site on Google Earth. Tags used are things like Placemark, Point Coordinates and Description.

    Write a keyword rich description for each physical business site and wrap it up in a KML file for each one, upload to root, add to sitemap and bingo - you've {spammed google earth|tagged your guys business on google earth}

    Use the link above then upload to the file manager.

    You might also want to install the Geotagmapper plugin on their site if it is a wordpress site.

    Guys should i create KML file if the business is customer based operation business(so i've chosen:
    - Yes, this business serves customers at their locations
    - Do not show my business address on my Maps listing)

    Any experiences with this?
