Step 3) Complete the fields as shown below:

A. Episode Titles One of the best ways to maximize your Podcast discovery and to manage your Web SEO is to maintain a separate title for your Web pages and your Podcast Feeds (titles in your feeds are what appear in podcast directories such as iTunes).

Specify custom episode titles for podcast feeds

Place a checkmark in the Specify custom episode titles for podcast feeds checkbox to create custom Episode Titles (item feed titles) for your Podcast Episodes.

There are three options available with this feature.

  • Feed episode title replaces post title (recommended)
  • Feed episode title prefixes post title (for advanced users)
  • Feed episode title appended to post title (for advanced users)

Append show title to episode titles

When searching iTunes, episodes are listed in a separate result from the programs. To get your episodes to appear in search results when your Show Title is searched, you can append the Show Title to your Episode Title.

If you already mention your podcast’s show title in your episode titles or blog post titles, do not place a checkmark in this checkbox.

For this example, this field was checked.
