Radio Mast streams can be promoted or published to various internet radio directories, to make it
easier for new listeners to discover your radio stream. Several radio apps use these directories as their source
of data too, so publishing to these directories can significantly boost your listenership beyond the web.
Genres - A comma or space-separated list of genres that describe your stream. This will help listeners discover your stream.
Good example: HipHop,Rap,RnB
Bad example: Hip Hop - This will appear tagged as "Hip" and "Hop".
Description - A sentence describing your radio station. This will appear under your stream name in the Icecast directory.
Making Changes After Publishing
Due to some limitations of these directories, it may be necessary to disable promotion for 10 minutes to get
changes to apply. We recommend configuring the fields above first before enabling publishing for the first time.
If you need to make changes later, disable publishing for 10 minutes while you make your changes, save your stream,
then re-enable it.
Before enabling promotion, we recommend filling out all the fields first, as changes
may not be reflected for 5-10 minutes afterwards.
Finally, to enable publishing your stream to internet radio directories:
After logging into Radio Mast, click Streams on the left.
Click the stream you'd like to promote, then click the Configuration tab.
In the Configuration tab, under Promote, check the "Publish to public internet radio directories" checkbox.
