Submitting your podcast to Google Podcasts (formerly known as Google Play Music) is a simple process:
- Create a Google account if you don’t already have one.
- Go to the Google Podcasts website and sign in using your Google account.
- Click on the “Publish” button and follow the on-screen instructions to submit your podcast. You will be asked to provide the RSS feed URL for your podcast, as well as some basic information about your podcast, such as its title, description, and category.
- After you’ve submitted your podcast, Google will review it to ensure that it meets their guidelines. This process usually takes a few days.
- Once your podcast has been approved, it will appear in Google Podcasts, and you’ll be able to see your podcast’s stats and analytics from the Google Podcasts Manager.
It’s important to note that you need to have at least one episode before you can submit your podcast and make sure your RSS feed is properly set up and valid.
It’s also worth noting that Google Podcasts will not host your episodes, you have to have your episodes hosted somewhere else, like a hosting service, and use the RSS feed link to submit it to Google Podcasts.
Buzzsprout is a podcast hosting and distribution platform that allows you to easily publish and distribute your podcast to different platforms, including Google Podcasts. If you host your podcast on Buzzsprout, you can find the RSS feed for your podcast in the following way:
- Log in to your Buzzsprout account.
- Click on the “Episodes” tab in the navigation menu.
- Click on the “Settings” button for the episode you want to get the RSS feed for.
- Scroll down to the “Advanced” section and you will find the “RSS feed” link.
