Here are some helpful tips regarding how to get your podcasts listed in the iTunes Music Store...

iTunes Compatibility

In order to have your podcast included in the iTunes Music Store, you must first add the iTunes "extension" to your RSS feed. This means that you will need to modify the RSS feed for your podcast or videocast so that it includes tags that are specific to iTunes. You can use software such as FeedForAll (see http://www.feedforall.com/ ) to automatically add the additional iTunes fields and encode the podcast feed for you. There is also a tutorial available that will walk you through setting up an iTunes-compatible podcast (see http://www.feedforall.com/itunes-tutorials.htm ).

Once you have added the additional iTunes tags, transfer the feed to your server using FTP.


Validate And Test The Feed

If you are manually creating the feed, you should validate the feed to make sure that it is properly formatted. Most programs for feed creation, like FeedForAll, have a built-in validator that will alert you to any problems or issues with the feed.

Once you have validated the RSS feed, you should subscribe to the RSS feed via your own RSS reader, just to see what your subscribers will be seeing, and to make sure there are no errors or problems.


Submit The RSS Feed URL To ITMS (iTunes Music Store)

The next step is to submit the RSS feed URL to the Apple iTunes Music Store. There are two ways to accomplish this task:

1. Launch the iTunes Music Store.

a. Click ‘Music Store’ in the left navigation column and enter the Music Store page.

b. Once on the Music Store page, in the left navigation column, click on the "Podcasts" link to go to the podcasts page.

c. In the left column of the Podcasts page, click on the ‘Submit a Podcast link’ button.

OR

2. If you already have iTunes on your computer, you can use the following URL to submit podcasts or videocasts directly to the iTunes Music Store:

I bought my record for all about a year and a half ago, loved it, used it all the time, and then my laptop died. I tried to install it on the new laptop and it will not work without the registration key, and for the life of me, I can't find it. Does that mean I have to buy it again???

The license allows you to use it on a single computer, as long as you are only using it one computer you will be fine. If you have misplaced your keycode contact orders (at) feedforall.com with your order details, name, email etc... and the key can be resent.

The expression "The face that launched a thousand ships" is a reference to the mythological figure Helen of Troy (or some would say, to Aphrodite). Her abduction by Paris was said to be the act that resulted in a fleet of a thousand ships being launched into battle, initiating the Trojan Wars. The Internet may be the modern day Helen of Troy. The Internet and its associated technologies have spawned a series of new industries that did not exist as recently as just twenty years ago.

The technical search giant, Google, alone is the inspiration and sole cause behind the creation of thousands of new businesses. There are now companies dedicated solely to Pay-Per-Click campaign management. Thousands of individuals and companies now make money through search engine optimization and outsourcing their services to improve website rankings, specifically to see that a website ranks well in Google's organic search results. There are now software applications that can determine what keywords to use in optimizing a website for search engine rankings, and other software programs that assess and evaluate website traffic and popularity. These products and businesses were all brought to fruition as a result of Google's Internet search domination and technical stature.

Likewise, technology has also killed a fair amount of companies. Fifteen years ago, the top search engines were AltaVista, Infoseek, and Goto.com (now known as Overture, or more recently Yahoo Search Marketing). In fact, Goto.com was the initial brains behind the pay-for-placement marketing model, of which a similar model was later adopted by Google, and very successfully grew Google's coffers.

Adopting new technologies is not enough though. Innovative business leaders see the opportunities that result from the emergence of new technologies, and are able to creatively figure out how to capitalize on those emerging technologies.

Without a doubt, technology has been the inspiration behind a series of new busin ...

Subscribe to an RSS Feed

There are generally two different kinds of tools that allow visitors to subscribe to RSS feeds. These tools are known as aggregators, or RSS news readers. As the content of an RSS feed changes, the RSS reader/aggregator will update itself automatically and display the new RSS feed items.

There are two types of aggregators -- desktop aggregators, and web-based aggregators...

Desktop Aggregators

These are downloadable desktop applications that contain all of the RSS subscriptions. In most cases, you can group and categorize the RSS feeds that you subscribe to. When open, the RSS desktop reader will update all the RSS feeds that you have subscribed to, and new posts will appear in the RSS reader.

Web-Based Aggregators

Web-based RSS aggregators are applications that reside online, through which you can subscribe to RSS feeds. The feeds are displayed on a webpage using a web browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. For example, one of the more popular web-based aggregators is Google Reader.

How To Subscribe To An RSS Feed

In order to subscribe to an RSS feed, look for the RSS icon on the websites you visit. Find the URL for the RSS feed, and paste it into your RSS reader and subscribe to it.

Many web browsers, such as Firefox, include auto-discovery features which will automatically detect RSS feeds. With those browsers, you will see an RSS icon in the left-hand side of the URL box -- just click the icon to obtain the link to the RSS feed.

Once subscribed, the aggregator or reader will periodically check to see if the RSS feed has been updated.

Coming up with ideas for new blog posts on a regular basis can be a challenge, even for the most prolific writers. Experience shows that readers tend to favor certain types of posts more than others. Here are some popular types of blog posts that you might want to use for those times when inspiration simply does not strike.

Lists

Lists are loved by readers. Top 10 lists, lists of top resources, lists of tools, lists of important dates, etc. Really, just about any type of list will tend to be very popular with blog readers. And you can easily craft lists from popular posts and other resources.

Interviews

Interview top professionals in your market or niche. Blog posts that contain interviews will frequently generate interest and attention. Additionally, interviews will often be cross-promoted on a related website by the person you interview, which often results in additional backlinks to your site.

Guest Posts

Invite others in your niche or industry to provide a "featured" guest post on your blog. This type of cross-promotion between blogs will often draw followers from the guest poster's blog to yours, and vice versa.

Educational

Educational posts and tutorials can also be very popular with blog readers. A "How To..." blog post or a step-by-step tutorial that educates readers will often be well received by your blog followers.

Reviews

Product or service reviews can also make good fodder for a blog post. Be candid and honest with your assessment in order to retain the trust of your readers.

Informative

Informative posts that provide valuable information, or information that is not widely known, can often become quite popular.

Case Studies

Studies that detail exactly how a specific product or technology can resolve a real world problem can also be quite popular. Especially interesting are studies of how someone has discovered a new, creative, and/or unusual way to use a product or service.

The Ins and Outs of Internet Sitemaps
Sitemaps are simply "road maps" that search engines can use to navigate their way through the various parts and sections of a website. The sitemap essentially tells the search engines where the various pages are located on the site. This is particularly important for websites that have multi-level navigation, which automated spiders might have difficulty with.

These sitemaps are not difficult to create. Google, Bing, and Yahoo all use a standard sitemap protocol. The larger search engines accept sitemaps in an xml file, and Google goes a step further by accepting them as .txt files or as an RSS feed (which essentially contains a list of URLs on the website).

Webmasters need not struggle with the creation of a sitemap, as there are a number of freely-available tools that will spider their site and create a sitemap in all the accepted formats. One such product is the free "GSiteCrawler" which can be found at http://gsitecrawler.com/ .

If you would prefer to create the sitemap manually, simply open WordPad or any other text editing program, and create a new document. Then, enter the following at the top:

[?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?]
[urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9"]

(in all these examples, replace the square brackets [ ] with greater than and less than signs < >)

After that, for each URL in the website that you want the search engines to spider, create a set of tags, and between them enter a single, full URL inside a set of [loc] [/loc] tags. The subsequent 3 fields shown in the example below are all optional: the [lastmod] tag refers to the last time the webpage was modified; the [changefreq] tag refers to the frequency that the page is changed; and the [priority] tag refers to how important the page is. If you are using software to create the sitemap, the software will automatically populate these fields. If you are manually creating the sitemap, you can choose not ...

PostForum: Announcements   Posted: Mon Apr 19, 2010 4:23 pm   Subject: Quick Questions About Podcasting
Podcasting is an up-and-coming and increasingly popular medium for communication. The following are common questions about podcasting, perfect for those just getting started in podcasting as a communication channel...


What Format Should I Record To?
While other formats are supported, MP3 is by far the most common format used for audio podcasts. Unless there is a specific and compelling reason to use a different format, you should stick with MP3 files for audio podcasts.


What Microphones Are Best For Podcasting?
It depends on the type of recording you intend to do. There is a big difference between portable and fixed microphones. If all of your recording will occur in a studio, you can use a fixed microphone and equipment suited to that environment. If you are taking your show on the road, consider whether you want to use a portable directional microphone, or a microphone that will pick up area background sounds.


What Options Exist For Hosting A Podcast?
First, you need to decide whether you intend to host the podcast on your own server, or whether you wish to use a third-party for your hosting needs. If you an opt for a third-party hosting service, you are giving up some control over the podcast file. While you will likely save in hosting costs with a third-party hosting service, you are also at the host's mercy if they make changes or decide to close their doors.
