How to create a podcast website

The best way for someone to find (and share) your podcast is through your podcast website. Having a dedicated site for your show will especially make you more discoverable on Google search. It's also easier to share your podcast website on social media. Once visitors land your site, you can highlight all the different ways they can listen (Apple Podcasts, Spotify, etc).

Podcast website tips

Your podcast website should have the following elements:

  • A homepage that describes what the show is about, with the ability to listen to an episode.

  • Landing pages for each of your episodes, with full show notes.

  • An "About" page that describes your show in more detail, and introduces the hosts.

  • A "Subscribe" page that enables people to easily open your podcast in their favorite app.
