Accurate & Reliable Podcast Statistics

Blubrry Podcast Statistics is designed specifically for measuring podcast plays. Our stats work with other platforms as well; track your show with Blubrry while remaining with your current host.

Unlike regular website statistics, we take into consideration unique internet addresses, resuming downloads, duplicate requests, and network errors, web crawlers, bots, etc, to filter out data that would otherwise inflate your statistics.

We do this to provide you with the most reliable data that is certified on how and where your podcast listeners consumed your content.

Estimated Audience

Be aware of how many of your podcast listens are Listeners and how many are Subscribers. 

  • Listeners are the daily average of listens over the 12 most recent episodes of overall listens.
  • Subscribers are the daily average of all listens over the 12 most recent episodes within 48 hours of your published episode. Subscriber data is available in our Thrive Bundle.


Average Daily Plays

This is one of our newest charts to track show growth. We take the most recent 12 episodes, total the daily plays and then divide by 12 to determine the average daily plays. While the number may seem low, this graph will track your show performance over time. If you have a growing audience, the average will increase over time. Slow and steady wins the race here.
