Announce your podcast
You can promote your podcast and new episodes by going to the podcast forums link (found just below the search box on every page). There you will find a forum called Promote Your Podcast. This is where you can write whatever you want about your podcast to draw attention to it. Titles to the posts are displayed on the home page – so write a good title to draw attention to your podcast. You can post for every episode.
Get listeners to vote for your podcast
Get a get rated button code by going to the Get Rated link found at the bottom of the page. If you put in your podcast ID number it will generate the code you can use on your website to let users vote and rate for your podcast right on your site.
Digital Podcast offers three top podcast lists to help potential listeners know what’s popular.
My Podcast Favorites are the top 15 podcasts as ranked by the number of users who have included these podcasts on their My Podcast Subscriptions lists. You can create your own My Podcast Subscriptions list by going to My Podcasts and registering as a user. Once you register you can add podcasts to your Subscriptions list by clicking on the Add to My Podcasts button on the individual podcast listings.
Most Votes are the top 15 podcasts as ranked by the number of votes/ratings your podcast has received from your listeners. Add a Get Rated button to your site to increase your votes. This is how the top ranked sites are getting to the top of the list.
Most Visits are the top 15 podcasts as ranked by the number of visits the podcast has received from Digital Podcast.
How do I get featured?
We do feature individual podcasts. I try to look for podcasts that are just below the top 15 on each of lists to find podcasts that people clearly like, and deserve some additional attention.
