How to verify ownership of a podcast when uploading it to podcast platforms?
Most podcast platforms verify ownership by sent a verification link to your email address - be careful when entering your email so as not to allow an error in the address.
How do I link a feed to a podcast homepage to get Google rich snippets?
In the feed, specify the podcast homepage URL on your website. You can do this when generating a feed. On the specified web page, add the following meta-tag to the <head> section:
  <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Podcast Title*" href="Feed URL**">

* "Feed Title" is the title of your podcast,
** "Feed URL" is the URL of your RSS feed.
With this tag, Google will be able to find and associate the podcast homepage with an RSS feed through natural means.
