Blubrry Podcasting, leaders in podcast production and promotion, has relaunched Cast Feed Validator, free service podcasters can use to ensure their RSS feed is working correctly. RSS feeds can be difficult to read and understand in a browser window, and Cast Feed Validator provides a detailed but simple explanation of the feed.
Acquired in 2017, the Blubrry team has incorporated features that are critical for current podcast directory requirements. The new version offers multiple SSL certificate tests including whether it’s trusted by Apple Podcasts, notification of Apple’s new categories and a map of deprecated categories, and additional notifications for regular RSS feed issues that most podcasters come across.
“This updated Cast Feed Validator is helpful to any podcaster, but stands out for new, or less tech-savvy podcasters,” said Todd Cochrane, CEO of Blubrry. “Reading and understanding an RSS feed is no easy feat, and this ensures that anyone can check that their show podcast feed is working correctly.”
