Migrating to Podbean from PodOmatic

It’s easy to move your PodOmatic podcast over to Podbean.

Step 1: Import your podcasts

After you create a Podbean account, simply go to “Publish” in your Podbean dashboard and click on “Import RSS”. You will enter your PodOmatic feed url there and the tool will automatically begin migrating your podcasts (titles and text will migrate immediately, audio and video files will take about 15-30 minutes to load).

Step 2: Set 301 Redirect on your old feed

Set up a redirect in Podomatic. Contact Podomatic about how to set up a 301 redirect to your new Podbean feed (may only be available for Podomatic Pro Users). Your podomatic feed should be redirected to your Podbean feed url, something as: https://yoursubdomain.podbean.com/feed. We recommend keeping your old feed/site in place for a few weeks to ensure all subscribers have moved across.

Step 3: Turn on iTunes new feed URL tag in your Podbean account

1. Log in to your Podbean account and go to the ‘Settings’->’Feed/iTunes’ page.

2. Scroll down the page, turn on the “iTunes:new-feed-url”, then click the “Update Options” button to save your changes.

Step 4: Update your podcast information in iTunes

Here is the Podcasts Connect Help article on updating your RSS (follow the steps under “to change your RSS feed URL”).

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact the Podbean Support team at http://help.podbean.com/support/home.
