Syndicating podcasts to Spotify
Spotify allows podcasters to submit their channel RSS feeds for syndication similar to iTunes and other syndication platforms.
Some important notes apply to Spotify syndication:
- Unlike any other syndicator, Spotify user applications does not read the podcast files from our servers. Instead podcast episodes are pulled onto the Spotify platform and served from there. This means that no access statistics from Spotify listeners will be visible on our usage reports. Publishers need to use the Spotify portal to get access statistics for their podcast there.
- Because files are not accessed directly from us, downloads inside the Spotify eco-system cannot be monetised via our dynamic ad engine.
- When adding a feed to Spotify it will pull in all episodes listed in the feed onto their platform.
