What is Podder's prefix?

A prepend/prefix is a short URL that goes at the beginning of your RSS feed. It lets Podder track all download requests that come through your show's RSS feed. You should add it so Podder can track your episode downloads and generate valuable insights about your show. Without adding it you won't see any data for your show.

Our prepend/prefix is a short URL which needs to be added at the beginning of your RSS feed.

What is your unique prepend & how to add to your hosting provider?

  1. Login to Podder.
  2. Go to your "profile".
  3. Look for "Podder Prepend". - This is your unique prepend URL.
