Most links created with Linkfire allow fans to select their preferred service for listening to music, via a landing page. However, you can also use Linkfire for podcasts and create landing pages that will take your fans to their podcast service of choice, while closely tracking their behavior every step of the way.
To create a podcast link, start by choosing the link type “Release”.
Next, paste your podcast URL (preferably from either Spotify, iTunes or Soundcloud) to capture any available metadata. From there, you’ll be redirected to begin setting up your link. This is where you can add/change the artwork and title, add tags and customize the subdomain and shortcode.
After clicking “Create link” you’ll be re-directed to your link feed, where you’ll find the newly created podcast link and a notification that reads “NO MATCHES FOUND”. This means that any service you wish to include has to be added manually.
Note: Our scanner is currently not geared to scan podcast links as it does music links. Thus, podcast links won’t yield any matches, meaning you have to add all services manually.
To manually add a link click “Edit link” and head to the section called 'Service destinations'. Scroll down to the bottom of the page where you will see a blue “+” icon with the text “Add service”.
Simply type in the name of the new service you’re looking to add to your landing page and click to select it. Find the newly added service in your list of destinations and click the drop-down to edit - like shown in the image below.
Choose “Manual URL” and input in the podcast link for that specific service.
When you're finished, click "Publish" in the top right corner of your screen.
