Question(s) of the Week
Question: (from the Facebook group) My show has 800 episodes. I can only send up 300 max to be available. And old episodes DO get listened to. I’m thinking of making a 2nd podcast channel – called maybe The Chris Voss Show Archives? So I can have a feed of the older stuff? What do you think? I swear I heard of someone doing this?
Answer: 90% of shows globally deliver 90% of their lifetime download within the first 96 hours so it’s really a matter are you truly getting significant downloads for that old catalog. It’s very very rare for a show to have that type of organic long tail reach.
The 300 is a practical limit, not a true hard limit but I’m going to guess if you set it to 800 or 1000 the feed would be too large for any app to pull effectively.
For those shows with long-tail, this gives your listeners a reason to go to your site. ALL your episodes are available on your site.
