New Dashboard – Beta – PCI 258

August 26, 2021

Blubrry Podcasting is moving quickly and within the next several days Blubrry Podcasters will get the opportunity to test our new modern dashboard. We look forward to getting your feedback as well. The entire Blubrry team has been involved in its creation and we are excited to show it off.

News:

Having trouble naming your new podcast?   Try this AI Based podcast naming site    We put in “Podcast from the insiders at Blubrry Podcasting talking about podcasting”  and got some good ones.  “Podcast from the insiders at Blubrry” “Blubrry Podcasting Insider Podcast“ and the ever-popular “Podcast Insider”

Best Practice:  If your show is published from WordPress, Don’t let a “Web Designer” move you off WordPress! 

Be careful about who you hire to build you a website. Do they know ANYTHING about Podcasting?
If in doubt contact your podcast host before doing anything to your website
Wix, Squarespace, and Kajabi CAN do podcasting, but it’s not their focus.
PowerPress by Blubrry IS 100% focused on Podcasting.

Question(s) of the Week

Question: Why can’t I find my podcast in Apple Podcasts search?  

Answer:  Apple is a hardware company, not a search engine company.   :)    It can take a few days or weeks for your show to show up in search results in Apple.  Note, the only thing that Apple searches (currently) is the Title of the overall Podcast, Episode titles and the Author tag.   (DO NOT STUFF THESE WITH KEYWORDS)
