The Complete Podcast Directory List For 2024 | RSS.com Blog


One of the keys to getting more listeners for your podcast fanbase is visibility. 

The more places people can find your show, the more likely it is that you’ll gain new listeners and fans. 

Submitting your podcast to the major directories like Apple Podcasts and Spotify can put your show in front of millions of new listeners.

For all podcast directories, you’ll need your podcast’s RSS feed. If you don’t have one, you can quickly create a podcast RSS feed here.

Once you have your show’s RSS feed, copy it to your clipboard, Word, or Notepad. Some directories will ask for your show’s title, description, and the email address associated with your podcast so you’ll want to have that ready as well.

1. Apple Podcasts: We recommend adding your show to this directory first because it can take the longest to be approved. You’ll need an Apple ID before you can submit your podcast for review.

💡Important Update: Google has announced that the Google Podcasts app will be discontinued in April 2024. To help with the transition, Google has released a migration tool that provides an easy way for podcast listeners to migrate their subscriptions to YouTube Music or export them for use in other listening apps.

You can find step-by-step instructions on how to migrate your Google Podcasts subscriptions here.



3. Spotify: Create an account, link your RSS feed, and wait for approval. This can take up to five days. IMPORTANT – you need to have uploaded at least one episode to your podcast host. Until you do so, Spotify will not be able to find any episodes and will reject your feed.

Do You Have Multiple Podcasts?
