I just sent my rss feed this past saturday when it was very late at night. I don't know if it has something to do with the time, but you know iTunes sent me this email.



iTunes Store Welcome


Dear podcast owner,


Your podcast feed, [ ] was successfully added and is now under review.




The iTunes Store Team

The thing is that i heard that it takes between 2-3 days to be reviewes. Should i resubmit again? I tried to send the rss feed again and it said that it was already sent.


If i tried to resend the rss feed again this will slow my podcast or make itunes to reject it??


Could you please check my rss feed to see if it is good? I am in Spain i don't know if it takes more time for being here.


Thank you so much for your time and help.

    2-3 weeks is more like it. It's just a question of waiting, there is no way of speeding it up. The feed appears to be fine. Don't submit it again - you won't be able to anyway.

    Once it's approved and in the Store you don't have to get any further approval. When you add a new episode you simply re-upload the feed - that's all you need to do. The new episode appears immediately for subscribers because their iTunes application reads the feed directly and the Store is not involved.


    However because of the huge number of podcasts in the Store (thousands) the Store caches the feed and checks it for updates periodically. For this reason it usually takes 1-2 days for new episodes to appear in the Store: sometimes it can be less, and occasionally the whole process seems to get stuck and it can take several days.


    You should check your feed by subscribing, either from the Store page or manually from the 'Advanced' menu in iTunes, to see that your new episodes are there. If not, then you have an error of some sort (such as a duplicated 'guid' tag). If all your episodes appear when subscribing then the Store should catch up after a bit.
