Your website serves as an ambassador to your brand and podcast. It’s natural to include a way for visitors to access your podcast on various podcasting platforms. Even if you have your podcasts available for listening directly on your website, some people prefer a certain platform. 

So if you want to add your podcast to your website, how do you do so? We’ve put together this guide to help you do just that. 

The first step is to find your podcast’s link on the different platforms. We’ve included steps on how to do this on popular platforms below. Once you have the links, you can skip to our How to Add Podcast Links to Your Site section

How to Find Your Podcast Link on Popular Platforms

If you need help finding the link to your podcast, check out our tutorials below. We cover: 

Note that these tutorials only work if you have already added your podcast to the platform. If you have not yet added your podcast to the platform, we recommend doing that first. 

Find Your Podcast Link on Itunes

If your podcast is on Itunes, follow these steps to get a link that will send people directly to your podcast on that platform. 

A quick and easy way to find your podcast link in Itunes is to locate the email Itunes sent you when you first added your podcast. It will include the link directly to your podcast. 

Deleted the email or can’t find it? No problem! Just follow the steps below: 

  1. Open Itunes on your computer
  2. Click on the Store tab 
  3. Find the search bar in the top right corner and search your podcast name
  4. Find your podcast and click on it
  5. Next to the Subscribe button, click the down arrow
  6. Click the Copy Link tab

You can then use CMD + V (Mac) or CTRL + V (Windows) to paste the link wherever you need. 

Find Your Podcast Link on Stitcher

When on your computer, Stitcher allows you to listen in your internet browser. This makes it very straightforward to get your podcast link. All you need to do is go to the Stitcher platform in your browser of choice.

Once there, use the Stitcher search bar to find your podcast. You can access the search bar by clicking the magnifying glass icon in the top right corner. Search results are displayed as you type them, so select your podcast from the results. 

Once on your podcast page, copy the URL from your browser’s URL bar. This is the URL you can use to send your visitors to your podcast on Stitcher. 

Find Your Podcast Link on Spotify

To find your podcast on Spotify, you will need to either use the Spotify web player or download the Spotify desktop/mobile app

Once in the app or web player, you can follow the steps below: 

  1. Use the search bar to search for your podcast on Spotify
  2. When you’ve found your podcast, click on it to go to it’s podcast page
  3. On the podcast page, click the three dots next to the “Follow” button
  4. In the drop-down, hover over “Shared”
  5. Click “Copy Show Link”

Doing this will copy your Spotify URL. You can paste the URL by using either CMD + V (Mac) or CTRL + V (Windows). 

Find Your Podcast Link on Google Podcasts

To get your Google Podcast link, the first thing you’ll need is your podcast’s RSS feed. 

If you host with Libsyn, you can find it by logging in to your Libsyn account and following these quick steps: 

  1. Select the Destinations menu in the Libsyn dashboard
  2. Find the Libsyn Classic Feed section and copy the address listed

Note: To do this, you should have already completed the Getting Started with Libsyn Checklist. If not, we recommend doing that first. 

Once you have the RSS feed, go to Google’s Podcast Publisher Tools here:

Paste your RSS feed into the field and click the Generate button. The page will return your podcast’s URL.

Your Website + Your Podcast = Goals

Regardless of whether your main focus is your podcast or your website, connecting the two is a great way to unite your two audiences. People listening to your podcast might go check out the additional materials on your site. Your site visitors might be inspired to listen to your podcast. It really is a win-win to link the two together.
