How to Move Your Podcast From Libsyn
If you are currently hosting your podcast on Libsyn and would like to move over to the Sounder.fm platform, please follow these below steps:
Step 1 - Migrating Your Existing Podcast and Episodes to Sounder
- Before you do anything on the Libsyn site, please make sure you sign up with an account on Sounder.fm and begin the process of transferring your podcast show and corresponding episodes to our system. It is as simple as searching for your podcast within your Sounder dashboard and selecting import.
Step 2 - Redirect Your RSS feed on Libsyn to Your New Sounder RSS feed
- Login to your Libsyn dashboard.
- Click on Settings in the menu.
- Select "Redirects"
- In the "Feed Redirect URL" Add your Sounder RSS URL
- Click on Yes to confirm
After the redirect is complete, how long should I keep my Libsyn account active for?
We recommend keeping your Libsyn account live for at least 4 weeks. This ensures the podcast apps have enough time to update the new location for your podcast. After the 4 weeks, you can contact Libsyn and have them deactivate your account.
What site should I post new episodes to after the RSS redirect is complete?
You will no longer need to post episodes into your Libsyn account and should only post the new episodes into your new Sounder.fm account. This will ensure all of the podcast apps grab your new episodes from Sounder.
