Building a show and branding it isn't easy. There are many facets that go into the making of a show and reputation, and it's harder than many podcasters expect to create a brand on their own. CastFeedValidator.com is now part of the Blubrry tools and services that are provided to the podcasting community. Changes are not coming soon, as some might have been worried about.
Apple tends to change things up, but one thing they haven't done lately is change the way ranking works. Mike and Todd are here to debunk some of the ideas that people have around how the entire process over at Apple works. Lastly, as always some tips and insight into support issues that Blubrry faces. Thanks for tuning in to episode 18 of Your Podcast with Todd Cochrane and Mike Dell.
