How to Use Blubrry Statistics Without Being Hosted by Blubrry

Note: Blubrry Media Hosting customers do not need to utilize these instructions. These steps are only for users of Blubrry Free Stats or standalone Blubrry Standard Stats.

Create a free Blubrry account. During the signup process, you’ll be guided through how to add your first show listing to your Blubrry account. When the process is complete, you will be logged in to your Blubrry Podcaster Dashboard.

Click either the Sign Up for Free Basic Statistics or Sign Up for Standard Statistics links inside the Podcast Statistics box. If you’re not sure which link to use, start with Free Stats. You can upgrade to Advanced Stats at any time in the future.

Once returned to your Podcaster Dashboard, click the Getting Started link inside the Podcast Statistics box.

Look for the Your Media Redirect URL box. This is the Blubrry Media Redirect URL you’ll need to use in order for Blubrry to begin tracking your podcast downloads.

The following image shows what a Blubrry Media Redirect URL looks like. Note: this is not the actual Blubrry Media Redirect URL you will want to use with your show. It is just an example of a Blubrry Media Redirect URL.

Note: the Blubrry Media Redirect URL shown in the box will start with http:// but you should use https:// instead. For example, the Blubrry Media Redirect URL  in the above screenshot is shown as:

http://media.blubrry.com/powerpress_podcast/

But the correct Blubrry Media Redirect URL to use is:

https://media.blubrry.com/powerpress_podcast/
