The Technical Side of Podcast Promotion – PHD111

Play Download media

1. Never Promote something you do not own.   Send people to your website and then give them all the choices you can reasonably.

  1. Apple 🍎
  2. Google Podcasts
 (notice I didn’t say Google PLAY‽) 💻
  3. RSS
 🖥
  4. Tunein
 📻
  5. Spotify
 💩
  6. Android
 📱
  7. Stitcher
 🎧

2. Having your RSS feed come from your website with YOUR domain in it will help you in Google search.

3. “Write your show notes for Google Search.  Make your show audio for your listeners.” – Todd Cochrane 🚒

4. Don’t try to game the system.  The more you try to game the system, the more likely it is you will get removed from some directories for whatever rule violation.  Just make good content and repeat often. There is no shortcut.

5. Ratings and reviews DO NOTHING to promote your show.  Period.

6. Being in the top XX list on Apple Podcasts will not help you much if at all.

One image is embedded in the mp3 file in the iD3 tags. It is white with red writing...

Apple Podcasts is getting picky – phd108

It seems that Apple is getting more picky about Titles and Author tags in Podcast Feeds.



Titles should be just "the title" like - Podcast Help Desk. Not "Podcast Help Desk | The best place to learn to podcast like Dave Jackson and Daniel J. Lewis"...

Google Podcasts and Denon DN-300R test recording – PHD107

Play Download media
This is the first test recording using the New Denon DN-300R recorder.  Having the digital recorder mounted in the rack and always hooked up seems to be a better plan (for me) than using a portable recorder as a backup...
