It's important to be able to publicise your podcast. Part of this process is to be able to track how many and who is subscribing to your feed.
There are some online tools which allow you to enter the address of your Media RSS feed and create a button to go with it.
http://www.toprankblog.com/tools/rss-buttons/ - Here is one.
You need to fill out the form and choose which graphics you want to use. Annoyingly there isn't currently one saying 'Podcast' or 'Media RSS'.
When you click on Create Buttons you are presented with some code to embed in your website or blog.
You now need to embed this code in your page, or side bar of your blog.
This part of the tutorial is from makeinternettv.org
We suggest you test your feed in the various players before you commit to using a 1-click button. Make sure the feed works and that the experience is good.
When a visitor clicks a 1-click button, Miro opens up with the feed automatically subscribed to and ready to watch (when Miro isn't installed, the button leads to a download page).
Miro 1-Click SubscriptionHere is an example of a 1 click button.
Use the Miro 1-Click Button Maker to create a button for your site — paste in your RSS feed and then you will get code for a personalized button. Just paste the HTML into your site.
If you know how to embed HTML code in your website or blog that's great. If not there are so many different blog types that is is difficult to explain how to do it for all of them. For help on doing this for an HTML page you can look at the chapter embedding video into an HTML page.
An RSS feed is a URL, just like any other link on a website.
Scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the RSS feed links.
Right click (for mac, ctrl + click) on Entries (RSS). Now select Copy Link Location (Copy Shortcut for Internet Explorer).
Browse to Feedburner.com.
Use Edit > Paste to input your RSS address into the field. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE BOX THAT SAYS I am a podcaster!
Now click the Next button.
Now Feedburner will prompt you to create an account.
Make sure your feed title and address are good, and then fill out the account information. Once you're set, press the Activate Feed button.
The link in blue is your optimised video RSS feed. In order to have viewers subscribe to your videos, they will need this magic link. Write it down.
Feedburner has a ton of advanced options, such as custom feed icons, descriptions and titles.
There has been error in communication with Booktype server. Not sure right now where is the problem.
