3 Easy Steps for Submitting Your RSS Feed to iTunes

0

One of the reasons why podcasts are so hyped and popular these days is that once they’re online, you can share them everywhere and through any platform or device. This means that once you’ve published the newest episode of your podcast, thanks to your RSS feed, you’ll be able to get it automatically shared on every platform or network you’ve set it on, including iTunes, which is still one of the largest web services for listening to podcasts.

An RSS feed (Really Simple Syndication), which is set up like a URL, sends regularly updated or changing content from say a blog or a podcast, to other web services. A “podcast feed URL” is a document which contains all of your show’s information, and if you want to submit a podcast to iTunes, you’ll need to have it hosted on a website that is able to generate its RSS feed. The way it works is that every time an update is made to your podcast, the RSS feed gets automatically updated as well. Then, whoever is subscribed to your podcast’s RSS feed will be automatically notified that there’s new content. If you’ve submitted it to iTunes, or any other podcatchers that accepted RSS feed submissions, it will show up there, too.

What if you don’t have a website set up for generating RSS feeds? Well, no problem: you can set up your podcast on Spreaker, and it will automatically generate the RSS feed for you. In fact, we give you the ability to share both your Show and Profile RSS feeds. To do so, here are the three steps you need to follow:
