Google Indexing Podcasts on Desktop and Mobile Browser Search – YP57

Todd and Mike are both a little under the weather, but that didn’t stop them covering a lot about Google indexing and searching of podcasts. There is also lots of conversations on what directories will display your show notes, we clear that up. We’re still looking to collect podcast promos that we can use on the show, so get recording. They wrap up the episode discussing podcast titles – some dos and dont’s.

Thanks for listening to the show and please subscribe at

We love our PowerPress users, please leave us a review 😀
