Using stats with Podbean
« on: April 06, 2018, 02:52:21 pm »
Hi, I have a podcast that I host on Podbean (I know, I know, lol) and I signed up for the professional stats a few months ago.  I am wondering how I can get the stats to work on my podcast.  I have it installed on my WordPress page, but I am extremely confused as I am getting many downloads according to the Podbean stats but the Blubrry stats don't show anything aside from when I download to my site for the most part.  Sorry for the noob here, just no clue what to do.

website is and the podbean site is

On Blubrry directory the show is

If you're using a PodBean-generated podcast feed to distribute your show to services like Apple Podcasts, etc., you can't use third-party stats from services like Blubrry. This is due to limitations PodBean has put on its system.

If you're using a feed generated by the PowerPress plugin and only using PodBean for media hosting, link your WordPress installation with your Blubrry account using these instructions:

Doing so will add your Blubrry stats redirect URL to your PowerPress settings and that'll allow the Blubrry stats system to start tracking your downloads.
