I was shocked tonight when I was looking at some of my podcast consumption data. While the below screen shot is only a small part of our podcast statistic service I am seeing some amazing trends in just how people are downloading and consuming my show.
How my listeners are downloading and listening to my show is a radical change from just one year ago! I will let you digest it yourself, but the most remarkable thing I am seeing in this report is how blackberry downloads has exploded onto the charts who would have thought.
Note: The following data was a snapshot of Geek News Central Podcast consumption for July 2009 percentages are accurate within 0.25% and are compiled with the free Podcast Statistics my company makes available to podcasters worldwide.
We punched out the PowerPress update this evening, and as I promised last night I told you we would have some video for you to watch. I am going to send you over to a page that has two videos linked that will get you up to speed with what we released.
Before I send you over there let me run you through the update.
- We added a podcast statistics summary to the WordPress dashboard.
- Blubrry Podcast hosting customers can have their ID3 Tags written automatically.
- We added Category Cast, podcasters can now setup categories as independent podcast feeds.
- The final update which is the most important is our new 3 Step Podcast Publishing Process
Check out the New Feature in Action and watch the Video as a picture is worth a 1000 words!
Come back after the jump and let me know what you think!
