To submit your podcast to iTunes (or any other podcast service) you need to first get your podcast feed URL. This is available from the Publishing tab in the Podcast > Settings page.
Once you have this URL you can submit it to any podcasting service that you like. To do this for iTunes, simply go to their submission page and log in using your Apple ID. If you don’t have an Apple ID already they’re free to create and you can do so here.
Once you’re logged in click on the + icon on the Top Right of the screen and paste in the Podcast Feed URL you just copied from your WordPress site.
Click Validate to ensure that there aren’t any errors with iTunes reading your feed, and then click Submit. Once your feed has been successfully submitted you will receive 2 emails from iTunes.
- The first email is to confirm that your show has been successfully submitted. This will occur almost instantly after you submit your show.
- The second email will come about a business day later when your show is approved. In this second email will be the unique link to your podcast in iTunes.
Copy that iTunes URL and come back into Seriously Simple Podcasting in the Settings -> Feed Details area and enter it as your iTunes URL. This will create the “Leave a Review” link below the podcast player on your site.
Now anytime you submit a new podcast episode iTunes will read your podcast feed and update your podcast’s entry in their directory with the latest episode details.
