After successfully submitting your podcast to the iTunes music store and receiving notification of its successful addition, you will be able to add a 1-click subscription link to your podcast from your blog or other website presence. If you are using a podcast in conjunction with a course management system like Blackboard, you can create a link in your Blackboard course making it possible for students to subscribe to your podcast with 1 click.

To a 1-click subscription link to your blog or website, follow the same steps outlined in the earlier episode of this series entitled, "Adding a Link to a RSS Feed." The only difference between adding a 1-click subscription link and any other RSS feed link is that the 1-click subscription link is the URL that iTunes created for your feed when it was successfully submitted to the iTunes music store. To find this URL, open iTunes and search for your podcast. Once you find your podcast, click on the name of the podcast to maximize the podcast in the iTunes window, in which the title, author, and description of the podcast is displayed. Right-click on the podcast title and select the option to, "Copy iTunes Music Store URL." You've now captured the URL for your podcast in iTunes. Just paste that URL into the code in your blog template or website for your 1-click link and save your changes. Visitors will now have the option to subscribe to your podcast with just 1 click!
