The official Google Maps API blog lets us know that you can Drive More Traffic to Your Maps API Site - Include KML Files in Your Sitemap.
Including KML files in a
sitemap.xmlfile (see http://www.sitemaps.org/protocol.html ) is a great way for you to help us index and drive traffic to your site. After publishing your data in KML, we’ll crawl the KML files that you specify in your
sitemap.xmlfile. We’ll send users your way when they search for content that is found on your mashup site. As an added bonus, once your data is in KML, it will be available for viewing on Google Earth.
