  • I’m having the same problem. I don’t know what to do. All I could so far was submit it to Itunes and Google Play.

    Google Play Music and Google Podcasts are completely separate apps. Submitting a feed to Google Play Music does not automatically get that feed into Google Podcasts.

    Google Podcasts relies on the Google search engine indexing your feed and then adding it to the Google Podcasts app. As long as your feeds are publicly available and can be found by search engines, Google will eventually index them and add them to Google Podcasts. Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do to speed up this process.

    Hi Shawn, the feeds are publicly available and indexing is on… these feeds have been active for over a year so no clue whey they wouldn’t be getting picked up.

    Hello @coryalanjenkins,

    Thanks for using PowerPress!

    I see you are using CloudFlare, this can cause issues with caching depending on the security level setup at CloudFlare. Usually this is a problem with Apple podcasts directory not Google. Google podcasts (not google Play) uses Google search indexing, make sure your site is indexed by checking it in Webmaster tools (Search Console). Webmaster tools/Search Console can tell you if parts of the site cannot be indexed which could be part of the issue.If you were using Yoast SEO, more than likely your feeds were set to no-index, that was just fixed in the latest update to PowerPress. If you just updated PowerPress and using Yoast SEO give Google 1-2 weeks to re-index your site, or force it to update by using Webmaster tools.

    Thanks,
    Angelo
