Androids remain one of the most widely used smartphones in the world. You wouldn’t want to miss out on millions of potential listeners by not being on Google Podcast.
Submitting your podcast to Google Play Music is easy but a little different from submitting to other directories. In this article, I’ll guide you step-by-step on how you can do it:
1. Go To Google Podcast Manager
The Google Podcast Manager is the new Google Play Podcast Portal.
2. Enter RSS Feed URL
The first step after logging in the Google Podcast Manager is entering the RSS Feed URL. It is available in all the podcast hosting platforms.
I use Buzzsprout and there you can find it easily under the ‘Directories’ tab. You should have at least one episode published for the RSS Feed URL to work.
3. Preview Feed And Submit
In the next step, you can get a preview of your podcast feed and submit. To speed up this process, you can also manually submit your RSS Feed to Google. This can help in fastening the indexing process.
4. Verify Via Email
Google will send a verification code in the email tag once you submit your RSS Feed URL. Copy and paste that code to verify ownership.
5. Publish And Wait
It can take anywhere between a few hours to a few days for Google to index your RSS Feed. Someone will review your Google podcast submission before it goes live.
While you wait…
