A couple weeks ago I wrote an article on how to Submit your podcast to iTunes. Because of that I was asked the question:
That is a great question Rob. Let’s find out how to remove the podcast RSS
How to Remove Your Old Podcast from iTunes
- Open iTunes and sign into the iTunes Store.
- Find and select your podcast.
- Click Report a Concern.
- Select “Remove a Podcast” from the Choose a Reason menu.
- Explain why you want the podcast removed.
Can I Salvage the old RSS Feed?
It depends on where the RSS feed pointed to. If you can re-create that path then you should be able to revitalize the feed.
When it comes to third party systems like Squarespace, that might be difficult to do. Especially if the RSS feed you used wasn’t for a web property you own. For example: Let’s say you have a website and a Blip.tv account. Blip makes an RSS feed which you can use. However, if I was to leave Blip for my own hosting, that RSS feed (http://blip.tv/geekazine/rss/itunes/ for example) will be useless.
Removal of the iTunes Feed
Rob informed me the iTunes feed was removed within 24 hours. He received an email confirmation as well.
