Redirect Podcast Feed

Once you’ve imported your podcast episodes into Buzzsprout, you’ll want to redirect your old RSS feed to your Buzzsprout feed. This will ensure that all of your current subscribers and podcast listings will look to your Buzzsprout feed for new episodes and podcast updates.

The best way to redirect your feed is with a 301 redirect which will tell your subscribers and listings that your podcast has moved to a new RSS feed. Here are instructions on how to redirect feeds from various podcast providers:

Redirect Blubrry RSS Feed

To redirect your Blubrry RSS feed you’ll want to email Blubrry support and request they redirect your feed to your Buzzsprout feed. They will need your podcast information as well as your Buzzsprout URL.

Feed free to use this email template:

Hi Support,

I’d like to transfer my Blubrry podcast to a new host. Can you please redirect my podcast [podcast name] at [current RSS feed URL] to my new RSS feed URL at [Buzzsprout RSS feed URL]. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,

[Your name]

Make sure you keep your Blubrry account for at least 2-weeks to make sure all of your listings and subscribers move to Buzzsprout.
