I haven’t received the verification link. How can I solve this?


Probably the email you entered for claiming ownership does not match the email in the RSS feed.


One possible reason for not receiving the email with the verification link is that an auto-generated email address could be displayed in your RSS feed, especially if your podcast is hosted on Anchor, Audioboom, Pippa, or SoundCloud. 


To check what the email address is displayed in your RSS feed, you can open the RSS URL and search for <itunes: email> tag in the Google Chrome desktop browser. If a regular web page is displayed instead of a text-based RSS feed written in XML, you need to right-click and choose “View Page Source”.   


You can update this email address using your hosting provider’s service. Here are some useful references for how to update the email address for different hosting sites.


Anchor: Please contact Anchor’s support at help@anchorfm.zendesk.com for assistance: ask them to change the email associated with your RSS. Alternatively, you can try this procedure.
