Question

Does Deezer respect 301 redirects for podcast feeds?

Over a week ago, I moved podcast hosting companies. Part of that process was to put a 301 redirect on the old feed oo the new, as well as add the <iTunes:new-feed-url> parameter to the new RSS feed.

 

When I check stats on my old host, I see Deeer’s user agent listed in my downloads from today and yesterday. That means that Deezer hasn’t followed the 301 redirect and is still pointing to the old feed. 

 

BTW: Deezer is the *only* podcast app/directory still pointing at the old feed. All others have respected the 301 redirect and used the new-feed-url directive.

 

Old feed was: https://bestsips.libsyn.com/rss  And if you click that, you’ll see the new feed, because of the 301 redirect. 

Please advise.
