Title: Google Podcast Link wrong
Post by: Martin Limbeck on October 13, 2018, 06:04:39 am
Hi,
my Podcast Leaders Cafe is on Google Podcasts, but the link generated automatically on your website (https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cubGVhZGVycy5jYWZlL2ZlZWQvcG9kY2FzdC8=) is not working anymore but gives a 404 error.
It used to work though...
Any ideas?

Ensure that you've updated to the latest version of PowerPress 7.4 and then go to the Destinations tab of PowerPress Advanced Mode settings. Find the Google Podcasts option and check the box next to Modify, then copy/paste the correct URL to your Google Podcasts listing and click the Save Changes button.

It doesn┬┤t work because the link generated on your website is wrong already and gives the 404. https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cubGVhZGVycy5jYWZlL2ZlZWQvcG9kY2FzdC8=

Do you have a URL for Google Podcasts that you know is valid?

Thanks for pointing me to the obvious... yes, I was able to extract the two valid URLs for my two Podcasts from the Podcast App.
https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cDovL3d3dy5tYW5hZ2VtZW50dHJhaW5pbmcuZGUvY2F0ZWdvcnkvcG9kY2FzdC9mZWVkLw
https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cubGVhZGVycy5jYWZlL2ZlZWQvcG9kY2FzdA

These two are working and I have saved them in the backend. So everything┬┤s fine for me now.
 
Remains the problem, that the ones generated in your backend are wrong, though.

Are you using a feed from a source other than your website?

What is the direct URL to the feed (not the Google Podcasts URL, but the feed URL from your website)?
