Did I change my feed correctly?

I just started a new podcast series a few days ago and I already have iTunes reading my podcast feed.  I then decided that I would like to use feedburner instead of the normal feed my Wordpress plugin is creating for me.


I created a 301 Redirect and it is setup correctly (redirecting old feed to new feed).  Since the file structure or URL of my site didn't change, is this all I need to do?

    You should use the 'new-feed-url' tag. The 301 redirect may or may not work with iTunes  - there have been compaints that it hasn't - but may stop being effective if removed. And in any case, if you have submitted the feed to Feedburner to be passed on to iTunes, won't the 301 simply redirect Feedburner to itself?


    The 'new-feed-url' tag will redirect both the Store and subscribers to the new feed permanently: leave the old feed in place for a fortnight to make sure everyone catches up and it will then remain in place.
