Podcast URL Questions
« on: December 08, 2015, 04:13:34 pm »

I have two questions regarding urls.

1.  My feed is now up and running and validated successfuly which is  However, I wanted to use as a page on my wordpress site but when I go to that url it is the exact same as the feed url.  Do you know what my options are as far as using the /podcast/ url or is it locked to powerpress/blubrry somehow?

2.  My iTunes podcast is now live on iTunes at:   My show is "The Dr. Hedberg Show" and I noticed they put the "." after "Dr." in the url and i'm wondering if this is fine or if the period will cause any problems with anything or SEO.

1.) Follow the instructions on this page to regain control of the /podcast slug on your WordPress site:
Keep in mind that temporarily disabling PowerPress like this won't cause you to lose any of your settings.

2.) Your iTunes URL seems to be working fine. I'm sure Apple knows which characters its system can and can't use in a URL string, so I wouldn't be concerned. Also, it shouldn't have any affect on your SEO.
