Unlike Apple, you don't submit your podcast to Google Podcasts, as their search engine crawls the web looking for podcast feeds to add to its index. The downside to this is it may take a few days before your feed is picked up by Google.

In most cases, Podiant should be able to calculate your Google Podcasts URL (as it's based on your RSS feed URL), but if it doesn't work, or you'd rather be explicit, here's what to do.

Visit the Google Podcasts link generator page. You don't need a Google account to use this tool.

Simply paste in your RSS feed URL into the first box and hit "Generate". You should then receive a "podcast retrieved" message, with a string of text beneath it, starting with "[https://www.google.com/podcasts".](https://www.google.com/podcasts%22) Copy that text into the Google Podcasts box in the Settings \> Directory listings section of your Podiant dashboard.

If you receive an error message...

If your podcast is new, you might receive a message saying something like "This RSS feed is not currently indexed by Google Podcasts". In this instance, all you need to do is wait for a few days for Google to index your show. All Podiant podcasts with at least one published episode are listed in our directory, so it shouldn't take too long for your podcast to appear.
