Publishing Your Podcast … With Blubrry’s Two Publishing Options

Via PowerPress and Blubrry Publisher


  • Blubrry PowerPress on a self-hosted WordPress site (We like to call this the Blubrry Way)
    • Lets you own and control the feed address apart from any company or 3rd party
    • Better for SEO (especially for episode search) 
    • Protecting yourself; as long as you have that domain and site, your podcast lives!
    • Gives you place to send your listeners for more information and to know where you will be no matter what happens on the app
  • Blubrry PowerPress on a Blubrry hosted WordPress site
    • Free with hosting plans at Blubrry
    • Most of the advantages of a self hosted site. 
    • Managed WordPress 
    • Very fast feeds and site loading
    • A bit restrictive, no additional plugins or themes
    • Use your own domain with a advanced plan or above at Blubrry

Blubrry Publisher

  • Dashboard Publishing
    • No website but a landing page on Blubrry.com’s directory 
    • Quicklinks page could also be a good landing page (although that isn’t really it’s function)
    • Publish everything right on your Blubrry dashboard
    • Can be used to get started quickly
  • Hosting files only and using some other way to generate an RSS feed (Squarespace, handwriting your own RSS or some other website support for podcasting) 
    • Not used too much
    • Blubrry would only be hosting files and collecting your stats.
    • Most other features would not be used at Blubrry
