Since I was just in my LibSyn account adding the latest LBR podcast, I was looking at my stats and thought I’d share a few insider podcasting tidbits with you.
Did you know that the Longbox Review podcast is heard in 26 countries (maybe more–these are just the stats since I moved hosting over to LibSyn)? Besides the US, the top four countries (based on number of downloads), in descending order, are Canada, United Kingdom, China, & Australia. C’mon Brits, you’re not going to let the Canadians show you up, are you? :)
The top regions for downloads are California (by a long shot), followed by Ohio, Texas, Unknown (gotta love that stat), Maryland, & Idaho! I was really surprised by how many people in Idaho listen to the show. I know I’m their homeboy and all, but still. The top region outside the US was Ontario, Canada.
Speaking of the USA, the top US markets are Unknown, San Francisco/Oakland/ San Jose, Cincinnati, Spokane (yay! Locals represent!), & New York.
So, what do listeners of the LBR podcast use to consume the episodes? No surprise here, but the top “user agent” is Apple apps/iTunes. Next comes from those who use Androids. For some reason, I was kind of surprised that the next two were browser consumed (Mozilla/Firefox and Internet Explorer). I also found it interesting that the Zune listeners outnumber the Stitcher listeners. Finally, there are now 9 others (it was just 2 for the longest time) out there who use the Shifty Jelly Pocket Casts app to listen in (it’s the podcatcher that I use).
And finally, the top five podcasts from recent data are:
- Episode 53: Trinity War!
- Episode 49: Reviews Triumvirate
- Episode 50: 10 Top 5
- Episode 52: Batman, Inc. #13
- Episode 51: San Diego Comic-Con News
I want to thank everyone who listens, whether you are a long-time listener, you’ve just started listening, or you’re somewhere in-between. You are all awesome in my book.
