Adjusting the Title of the show in iTunes
« on: April 18, 2013, 07:32:44 pm »
I just published my new podcast using the PowerPress plugin and using the guide Pat Flynn put together, I got it up on iTunes.  However, when the show was listed, it's using my WordPress site title as the Podcast name.  That name is "Ingenious Internet Income" instead of the show name, "Self Publishing Master Class".  I have already enabled Podcast Channels and have gone and edited the podcast (default channel) to show the proper name.  I'll try to attach a picture showing that setting. 

When it actually posted on iTunes, it's not showing that change.  What am I doing wrong?  Thanks in advance!

What feed URL did you submit to iTunes? If you submitted your blog's main feed, then you're stuck. If yo submitted your podcast only feed, you will need to give iTunes 1-4 days to update.

I submitted the feed URL that was provided by the plugin.  The podcast did not exist prior to using the plugin and submitting it to iTunes.  So, iTunes is using the feed directly from the plugin.  To date it is still showing my show title as Ingenious Internet Income, and not the "Self Publishing Master Class", which is what I typed in as the name I wanted to display in the plugin.

Can you please reply with either the feed URL you submitted to iTunes or the URL of your podcast listing on iTunes? I asked this so I can look at it and compare it to the iTunes listing.

Your feed refreshes to feedblitz.com. We do not provide support for feedburner or feedblitz.

I see your itunes listing here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/ingenious-internet-income/id635701992?mt=2 Based on the feed redirecting to feedblitz is your main blog feed (not your podcast feed) you are essentially messing up your itunes listing. So you are aware, iTunes is using http://feeds.feedblitz.com/ingeniousinternetincome as your podcast feed, not http://www.ingeniousinternetincome.com/feed/podcast/.

Make sure feedblitz.com is using your podcast feed and not your regular feed.

Please read this, it also applies to FeedBlitz: http://create.blubrry.com/manual/syndicating-your-podcast-rss-feeds/feedburner-for-podcasting/ (you do not need FeedBurner or FeedBlitz to podcast, it is our number one problem PowerPress users have that they report to us, and since it's not our service it's out of our control. Highly recommend avoiding such services at all possible.

That's very odd.  I specifically submitted the PowerPress feed URL to iTunes when I created the show.  I do use FeedBlitz, but that's for my site feed.  Does that over-ride the specific URL provided by PowerPress?   I can work through their support to see what can be done, but I don't see how that would do that.  I'd rather have split feeds, one for the podcast and one for the website.  I might have to split the show out on it's own site to fix the issue permanently.

It overrides all your feed urls on your blog to 1 feed blitz feed.

Well that stinks.  Ok, I'll have to spend the weekend setting up a new site for the podcast.  Thanks for the information.  I'll try again.  <Grin>
