What are podcast analytics?

Podcast analytics is the measurement and analysis of all the data around podcasting. This data includes listener demographics, episode performance, and audience engagement. Podcast analytics is split between your owned podcast distribution through your website and third-party podcast distributing platforms like Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Pocket Casts.


Why are podcast analytics important?

Podcast analytics enables teams to create and optimize their podcast's content strategy. With podcast analytics, you can understand what content resonates with your audience, how different audience segments engage with your content, and know where your audience is coming from.
