  • Podcast apps may be buying ads for your podcast in Google Search without you knowing. Acast, The Podcast App and Amazon Music are all advertising against our own podcast title, and that of many other podcast titles, too. On an iPhone in the UK, an ad for Amazon Music appeared as the #1 search result for Podnews, seeming to suggest that access to our podcast costs £7.99/month, which is misleading (it’s free on any platform). The Acast ad leads to a web player, but no method of subscribing; The Podcast App’s ad led us to a web player with promotion for their own podcast app.

    • This isn’t against Google’s terms; and it’s probably nice to have some additional marketing for your podcast. What do you think? Is this OK? Hit reply and let us know.
  • Facebook is growing for podcast consumption: Tom Webster from Edison Research reports that Q3/21 data showed that 20% of people had listened to a podcast on Facebook. The same data three months earlier was just 8%. Meanwhile, still no sign of podcasts in Facebook outside the US; though if you are, you can now add your podcast to the platform.

  • PodMon is another AI-based audio monitoring tool that “searches tens of thousands of podcasts” for topics. It’s German, based in Jena.
