What Feed do I Submit to iTunes?



What feed do you submit to iTunes? We get this question a lot! Our answer: YOUR PODCAST FEED!

Why?

Your podcast feed is just that, it only contains the blog posts that you’ve associated media content with via the PowerPress “Podcast Episode” box. By submitting your podcast only feed to podcast directories like iTunes and Blubrry.com, you guarantee that your feed is delivering exactly what those directories are looking for. If you submit your regular blog’s feed, you may end up limiting the number of podcast episodes that are available on iTunes.

So what’s My Podcast Feed?

IF you go into PowerPress settings in your WordPress blog, select the tab titled ‘Feeds’. Look for the option titled “Podcast Feeds”. You should see at least one feed listed titled “Podcast Feed”. This is the feed you want to submit to iTunes, Blubrry.com and other podcast directories.

How Come I Only See 10 Episodes on iTunes?

If you have more than 10 podcast episodes, and you only see 10 in iTunes, it is because your feed is set to only include 10 items. To change this globally for all of your feeds, go to WordPress Settings > Reading page. In the field titled “Syndication feeds show the most recent”, enter a number larger than the default 10.

WARNING: We do not recommend settings this any larger than 50. The feed will eventually get excessively large which may lead to issues with your listings on services such as Tunes.

  1. Blubrry,

    On behalf of everyone who is using this plugin, I just wanted to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH :)! I’ve tried a lot of podcast plugins, and the Blubrry plugin is BY FAR the BEST Podcast Plugin on WordPress. No other plugin comes close. Thank you very much for making uploading audio, video, and submitting podcasts to directories such as itunes extremely easy. It literally doesn’t get any better than the Blubrry Podcast Plugin. Period.

  2. I would also like to know if I can change my iTunes podcast feed within PowerPress. Do I need to remove my existing feed from the iTunes store first, or is there a way to edit it without removing. Would the new feed need to be submitted to iTunes? Thanks!

  3. So do you actually have to go to iTunes and add your feed url or can Blubrry take care of that for you? If so, how do you submit your feed url to iTunes using Blubrry?
