Google has released their new podcast app worldwide. If you have a podcast and website (which you automatically do if you’re hosted with Podbean!), you can likely already be found there. If you’ve never submitted your Podbean site to Google search indexing before, you can submit it here. Once Google has added your site into the search index,  you can visit go here to generate a direct link to your podcast in the Google app or preview how your podcast will look in Google search results.


Here’s more information on Google’s requirements, plus tools and information on how you can make sure your feed is indexed or register it, if it is not showing up currently.


Fortunately, we’ve made things easy by taking care of the requirements for you if you host with Podbean! We’ve made updates to all Podbean sites so they meet the requirements. If you host with Podbean and use the Podbean podcast site, your podcast will meet all the necessary requirements.


If you run your own web site, please follow Google’s instructions (read more in the link above) to add a "link" tag to your site’s home page. And, go to “Settngs”→”Feed/iTunes”->”Advanced Feed Settings” in your Podbean account to set your site url into the “Link URL in RSS2” field.


*For your reference, you can get your podcast feed by going to “Settings”→”Feed/iTunes” and copying “Your RSS feed” (we’ve updated the formatting to ensure they fit with Google’s requirements).
