Podcast not showing up on iTunes
« on: June 04, 2018, 09:32:08 pm »
I'm coming in after the fact to try and clean up a mess. Published a podcast per usual last week and it never showed up in iTunes.

The episode that's missing from iTunes is entitled "Finding Your Purpose in Life: Stop Making it So Hard".

Here's the feed:
http://www.thenewmanpodcast.com/category/podcast-episodes/feed

Which goes to Feedburner (the podcast is over 10 years old so we're still on this system). iTunes pulls from this feed:
http://feeds.feedburner.com/TheNewMan

And here's the page in iTunes' directory:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/new-man-advice-for-men-on/id270419729?mt=2

Any ideas why this isn't working correctly? It's been fine for years.

Thanks for any help you may provide.

Looks like the last episode has made it to the Apple Podcasts listing. One thing you can always try when there's issues like this and FeedBurner is involved is to go to the Troubleshootize tab within FeedBurner and click the Resync button.

Thanks, Shawn. Turns out the feed was too big. Made some changes and got everything moving again.

We were using Powerpress's optimize feed function. Are there any other best practices to keep feed size down? We want to keep as many episodes on the feed as possible.

Thanks again.

Within the Feeds tab of PowerPress settings, make sure these options are set:
*Do not allow other plugins to modify podcast feeds.
*Accelerate feed
*Feed Episode Maximizer

Doing so will optimize your feed as much as possible (including minimizing overall feed size).
