Do you want to see updates from your favorite websites in one place? That’s exactly what an RSS feed is for. RSS stands for “really simple syndication,” and the concept has been around for a long time. However, they serve a special purpose for podcasters who use hosting platforms like Acast, which we’re going to get into today.
How to Use an RSS Feed with Acast or Another Podcast Hosting Program
If you aren’t familiar with Acast, it’s a podcast hosting platform that distributes your show to podcast players for you. I recommend Acast for my podcast clients, but other popular hosting platforms include Soundcloud, Libsyn, Anchor, and Spreaker.
These platforms utilize RSS feeds to keep all your podcast data in one place. Podcast players like Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts pull any new data that’s published on your RSS feed to update your podcast on their platforms. That’s why you only have to upload your episode to Acast and it automatically publishes on all the major platform players.
How to Find Your RSS Feed on Acast
I love using Acast because its RSS feeds are user-friendly, unlike other hosting platforms. To find your feed URL, go to your account and click “Settings.” From there, click on “Sharing and Discovery,” and you will see your URL.
