    You need to export the 3d model in google earth 4 (.kmz) File > Export > 3d Model...
    but make sure the file type is google earth 4.

    True, true.

    It's a question of how do you make the model in sketchup.

    Make a simple form, like a brick, and when you export it succesfully, start making changes to it and see if it still exports. You'll find what makes a model unexportable and You'll be able to avoid it when creating new models.
