PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU HAVE AN AD SYSTEM CONNECTED TO YOUR CURRENT HOST THEN PLEASE ENSURE THAT IT'S TURNED OFF BEFORE RUNNING YOUR IMPORT OR IMPORT THE AD-FREE VERSION OF THE RSS FEED IF YOU HAVE ONE.
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.
Once you've imported your podcast to Omny Studio, you can easily migrate to Omny Studio without losing your existing subscribers. All you need to do is 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.
To move from your own self-hosted RSS feed
You will need to set up a 301 permanent redirect from your old RSS XML URL to the new Omny Studio RSS feed URL.
Setting up a 301 redirect will differ depending on your server or content management system, so contact your host or website administrator if require assistance.
Note: Although Apple Podcasts will normally pick up on changes within a few days, you should leave the old feed in place for a few 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.
