Minor but Important Additions to Podcast RSS Feeds, featuring Stacey Mack – PCI 213

October 15, 2020

It's worthwhile to have a podcast host that implements new features in a timely manner, for instance new tags that seem minor can have significant importance to podcast RSS feeds.

Filling in for Todd this week, MacKenzie and Mike discuss the Podcast Academy awards, just what is going on currently with Podcast Index and elements of RSS, new information from Google Podcasts Manager and more.

Caching on your website

Not related to browser caching

Happens on your web server

Can cause your feed not to update

Can cause any website changes to not show up right away

There are lots of caching systems. Ask your web hosting provider to explain how to clear, purge, delete, empty or otherwise delete the cache after you work on your site or publish a post (most of them will clear automatically).
