Multiple XML Sitemap for geo targeting site

 8:27 am on Jun 1, 2009 (gmt 0)


If a site is in multi languages then we have to create different XML Sitemap for individual country folder to target their relative country in Google Webmaster tool OR one XML Sitemap compiling url for all country folders in them will also work same.

Please Suggest...Thanks for your support in advance....

You will have to verify the individual folders in webmaster to be able to set the geo-location for each of them separately.

Nope. Google says verifying the main domains is enough when you use folders. But you have to, when using subdomains.

However I still can't find information about that sitemap question. Because your example.com/country will appear as not crawled without a sitemap in your dashboard...

If you hold off I was told at SMX London that Google will soon be releasing xml sitemaps with a geotargeting tool.

Would that allow you to set different countries or cities to indicate a single page inside your sitemap?
Or folders perhaps?
