Podnews's Google Podcasts helper - our Wordpress plugin
December 26, 2018 · By James Cridland · 0.6 minutes to read
When we wrote our FAQ about Google Podcasts, and our guide on how to get listed, we noted that if you run a Wordpress website, it's not that easy to alter your website the way that Google recommends.
So, we made a plugin for it, to make it easier for everyone.
Here's where we'll link to it on Wordpress. (But we can't link yet because it's in approval).
This plugin will remove the extraneous
link rel="alternate" lines, and add a new one that links to your podcast RSS. That'll help Google discover your podcast feed.
You also need to link from your podcast feed back to your website.
Instructions for use
- Install the plugin
- Go into "Settings" and add your RSS feed address
- That's it
Please shout in case it doesn't do what you expect.
