RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS feeds are files written in XML format, that automatically update information from websites.

The files are then fetched by a user’s RSS feed reader that converts the files into easy to read real time updates from websites, skipping the navigation through graphic intense webpages.Β 

Keep in mind that while your website RSS feed picks up your website, blog posts and articles, your podcast will have its own RSS feed, containing only information about the podcast as well as all its episodes.
Audioburst Creators uses your podcast RSS feed to access your podcast episodes, and upload them on to the platform.
This is why, upon registration, you are required to submit your RSS feed url.
(Pro Tip: before submitting your RSS feed url to Creators, validate it to make sure there are no errors. This will speed up the processing time, and get you on Creators faster!! 😊 There are many online feed validator sites including Feed Validator, or more specifically for podcasts: Cast Feed Validator)
