Podcast not updating on iTunes
« on: December 03, 2010, 06:53:44 pm »
Hi there,

I recently have fixed the errors that occurred in our feed for the Chonilla.com (podcast and blog) I use wordpress powerpress by blubrry.

Our itunes address is http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=374975394

Our feed url: http://www.chonilla.com/?feed=podcast

I know now the feed is validated and I did add the new feed address in the iTunes New Feed URL options in powerpress however still nothing :-(

I have had a few of our subscribers showing some concerns that they are unable to get the latest episodes which is from 77 to 83.  Your site currently only shows from 0001 to 0076.

I need some assistance and was wondering if anyone can help us?

I hope to hear from you soon.

Peace and Chonilla love!

angelo

I just clicked the feed URL (http://www.chonilla.com/?feed=podcast) and it took more than 2 seconds to load. iTunes doesn't wait for feeds, if it takes more than 2 seconds it will fail and move onto the next one in the list of Subscriptions. You may want to check out some WordPress caching problems to see if that fixes the problem. The speed of feeds/pages is very important, especially for search engine optimization (Google search results). So when you get your pages loading faster, it should help you in a number of other ways as well as with iTunes.

The itunes:new-feed-url setting is only useful if your feed URL was different in the past. At that point, the new-feed-url setting is supposed to go into your 'old' feed, not your new one. Hope this makes sense.
