Use this guide to submit your new podcast to Google Podcasts.
Before You Start - Preparing
To submit to Google Podcasts you will need to have:
Created a show and published at least one episode to your podcast
Access to your Zencastr RSS Feed
Access to the email associated with your podcast
1. Submit RSS Feed to Google Podcasts
Open Google Podcasts Manager.
Click Start Now.
Paste your Zencastr RSS Feed in the “Enter a Podcast Feed URL” field.
Click Next Step.
Review your podcast details in the ‘Confirm your selection’ section.
Click Next Step.
2. Verify Ownership
Next, you will verify ownership of the podcast in one of two ways.
If your podcast email matches the Google account you are signed into, verification is automatic.
If your podcast email does not match the Google account you are signed into:
Click Send Code in the ‘Send Verification Code’ section.
Open your email client (e.g. Gmail, Outlook).
Copy the code in the 'Verify Ownership of Your Podcast” email.
Paste the code in the ‘Enter Code’ field.
Click Submit in the Verify Ownership section.
What happens next: Google indexes your podcast. They have not stated how long it takes, but it usually takes a few days to a week. Once indexed, it will automatically be listed on their apps.
Add Your Google Podcasts Show Link to Zencastr
Add your Google Podcasts show link in Zencastr to keep track of where your show is distributed and to add a link to your show’s Google Podcasts listing on your Zencastr show page.
On the Google Podcast website:
Search for your show
Copy the link from your address bar
On your Dashboard, click Shows.
Click the show’s image.
Next to Google Podcasts click +Connect.
