Once you have followed all the steps outlined in this migration guide, including:

  • disabling dynamic add insertion and removing any RSS feed pagination before importing feeds into Omny,

  • linking your shows to Podcast Metrics/Rankers if you currently use Triton Digital’s Podcast Metrics (PCM) platform,

you'll need to tell Apple Podcasts and the other podcast directories and apps to pull from your new RSS feeds. This is done by applying a re-direct from your old feed to your new feed.

Note: Once you've completed the steps in this help doc to redirect your feed, you can start uploading new episodes to your Omny Studio account to update your feed.

Applying a redirect in Whooshkaa

  • Sign into your Whooshkaa account, select "My Shows & Episodes" from the menu on the left. 

  • Select "Update" next to your show.

  • In the "Redirect from Whooshkaa" box, enter your new "RSS Feed URL" then click "Update Show".

  • Make sure the "Enable Public RSS Feed" is set to "on".

  • The 301 redirect will now be added to your feed. It can take a few weeks before all your subscribers move across to Omny, so leave this account in place until then. 

You can find your Omny RSS feed using this guide: http://help.omnystudio.com/frequently-asked-questions/where-is-my-rss-feed

Note: Although Apple Podcasts will normally pick up on changes within a few days, you should leave the old feed in place for a couple of weeks to ensure all subscribers are moved across.

To ensure Apple Podcasts picks up your redirect as fast as possible, you can follow these steps to update your RSS feed in Apple's Podcast Connect dashboard to the RSS feed you are migrating to (your Omny RSS feed). If you have any questions please contact us.
