Reminder: Google Podcasts was discontinued in April 2024. We have removed the Google Podcasts option from our app.

Before submitting your show to podcast directories you'll need to follow this guide: How to show my email address in my RSS feed?

In Google's original Podcast Manager announcement post they describe their submission process:

With Podcasts Manager, you can make sure your show is available to millions of Google Podcasts listeners through a simple verification process](

Google Podcasts has two requirements:

Have a website for your podcast with a <link> element that points to your RSS feed (websites generated on Transistor do this automatically).
Integrate with WebSub, so that you automatically notify Google's WebSub Hub when you publish a new episode (Transistor does this automatically).
