Publishing my podcast on Google Podcasts

Google Podcasts works differently than most podcast directories. Google uses the same mechanism to find podcasts as it does to websites: it uses so-called crawlers, which search the Internet and classify the content accordingly.

So that your podcast is found and indexed by Google, you need a homepage with the HTML element "link" with the URL to your RSS-Feed. Read on to find out what you need to do for it.

Podigee blogs

If you use the podigee blog, you do not need to do anything anymore. The link element is set automatically.

External websites

Podigee allows you to use your own external website for your podcast. In order for your podcast to be correctly indexed by Google, you must set the HTML element "link" in the <head> area of your website.

In the tab Podcast -> Exports you'll find the entry "Google Podcasts". There, you'll find the right code for your own website!

Otherwise, you can create the link manually following this example:

<html>
  <head>
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="My Podcast" href="https://mypodcast.podigee.io/feed/mp3"/>
    <title>My Podcast</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <h1>My Podcast</h1>
    <p>Hey! This is the website of my podcastt!</p>
  </body>
</html>

You should only have one link element like this on your homepage.
