Support:

  • If you change your password at Blubrry.com, you also have to re-login to blubrry.com from PowerPress.  Your PowerPress needs to have the new password.
  • Apple Podcasts has been a bit slow to update new episodes. It was 100% on their end.  Nothing was wrong with the feed.  Normal is 6-24 hours. Subscribers get it right away.
  • If your new episode doesn’t show on 1 of the many syndication points but does on others, chances are, that one app or directory is having an issue.   As with Apple, Spotify was having an issue that seems to be solved now.
  • Episode images – We are getting a lot of questions about those.  They only show in some directories.  Oddly, not in Apple other than episode search in iTunes (the old desktop software) We will have a list of which apps show which type of episode image in the show notes.  List of which platforms use episode images on Podcast Help Desk

Recorded live from two well-separated and socially distant podcast studios in  Michigan; here’s Podcast Insider. Produced by the Blubrry Pro-Production team.

From Apple podcasts:

Dear Podcast Creator,

 

We’d like to share some updates that help improve the experience for your listeners on Apple Podcasts and make it easier to manage your content.

 

Search Enhancements: International Expansion

Today on Apple Podcasts listeners can now discover shows and episodes by searching audio in 10 more languages in addition to English:

Danish

Dutch

French

German

Japanese

Korean

Norwegian

Russian

Spanish

Swedish

 

With this enhancement, listeners can easily search for and find shows by title, topic, guest, host, and more with just a few taps.

 

Moreover, we are expanding host and guest images across show and episode pages for a subset of shows in French, German, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish, making it easier to find related content to help fans dive deeper into the listening experience.

 

These features are routinely added to more shows. To prepare your show for eligibility:

If your show page already displays a Hosts & Guests section and you’d like to update or add images, contact us.

 

Podcaster Support Updates

We’ve enhanced Podcaster Support and published dozens of new articles to make it easier than ever to find the answers to your questions.

 

These resources will guide you through every step of your journey as a podcast creator — from brainstorming your show’s idea to generating and submitting a podcast RSS feed. You will also find valuable resources on how to monitor your show’s performance and optimize your marketing strategy.

 

Best regards,

The Apple Podcasts team
