What is episode linking?
Episode linking allows you to set your ideal landing page when listeners share any of your podcast's episodes from the Sounder Player. This link will also be referenced when certain podcast listening apps (such as Apple Podcasts) share an "Episode Webpage" link in the details page of any episode.
Where Episode Linking Impacts
The Sounder Player
Said differently, when you share a given episode from the Sounder Player, all of the links associated with the icons in the "Share via" section will correspond with the link you set in the episode linking field (located on the Episode Info page). You can choose between any of these options:
Podcast Listening App "Episode Webpages"
Below are the available options you can set for episode links.
Episode Page: Send your listener to your Sounder Episode Webpage. Example: https://thebigexit.sounder.fm/episode/justin-alanis-rentlytics
Podcast Webpage: Send your listener to your Sounder Podcast Webpage. Example: https://thebigexit.sounder.fm/
Episode within Sounder Player: Send your listener to a fullscreen webpage with the Sounder Player.
Episode Media File: Send your listener to a direct link to listen and download the audio file. Example: https://cdn2.sounder.fm/9498/audio--49021--5084--14--1c07664f-7089-4b01-b464-935739e49577.m4a
Custom Destination: Send your listener to a webpage of your choice. We recommend that you embed your Sounder Player on this webpage. By doing so, when listeners click this link, the page will automatically scroll to the Sounder Player and begin playing the episode.
