An often overlooked feature of Finalweb Church Websites is that sermon audio entries are automatically added to a podcast RSS feed. Visitors can easily copy the link to this feed and then subscribe to it within any podcast application. You may, however, want to submit the podcast to iTunes so that it is searchable from with that application in particular. Here are a few steps to consider.

First, Apple has provided much information on how podcast XML should be formatted. As a Finalweb Church Website user, you don't have to worry about any of that since we have taken care of it already. The link that is generated via the "Subscribe to Podcast" button is already in the right format.

Before submitting your podcast, you may want to look through the current download library files to make sure all the information is correct. Be sure, as well, that a podcast image has been added so that it can be displayed in the iTunes application.

After copying the link to the feed RSS, just open iTunes and then navigate to the Store, or click this link to get there automatically:

iTunes: Submit a Podcast

The steps from here are simple, and you may need to wait for a few hours or days before it has been approved.
