School of Podcasting - Plan, Launch, Grow and Monetize Your Podcast

May 8, 2023

I have a few ideas that I have put together, as they are all short ideas. The goal is to help you grow your show, and hook your listeners. 

Creating Better Episode Titles For Your Podcast

What is Global Rank?
This podcast is one of the top 0.5% most popular shows out of 3,100,277 podcasts globally, ranked by Listen Score (the estimated popularity score).

According to their site:
* Other websites / apps may claim that they have way more than 3,100,277 podcasts in their database. This is because they inflate the number by including A LOT of 1) podcasts that were already deleted long time ago; 2) super low-quality podcasts (e.g., no episodes at all, only one 10-second episode in the RSS feed for testing, or machine-generated audio); 3) non-audio contents distributed via rss (e.g., RSS feeds with only PDF files, not audio). On the other hand, we deploy automatic scripts (24/7) and human moderators (daily) to clean up data. We try our best to minimize the number of such bad "podcasts" in our database.

I still find it interesting that my friend's show which had its last real episode in 2015, has a ranking of 42 out of 100, and is in the top 1.5%

So I'm still a little blurry on how those stats are calculated..
