Klaas from the RPG Heroes asks, "Do I need a custom website for my podcast?"

TL;DR
While many podcasters are under the impression that getting more reviews in Apple Podcasts leads to a higher position on the podcast charts (or even inclusion in the New & Noteworthy section), those things are not influenced by the number of podcast reviews you have.

So what purpose do podcast reviews serve? Podcast reviews are one way to see what your listeners think about your podcast and serve as "social proof" to encourage new podcast listeners to subscribe.

The more 5-star reviews your podcast has, the more likely someone new is going to download an episode of your podcast and become a dedicated listener.

The best way to track your podcast reviews is with www.MyPodcastReviews.com. There you can see all of your reviews, from every country, and every app that allows listeners to leave you a review (Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Castbox, and Podchaser).

3x Strategies To Get More Reviews:

  1. Ask your audience at the end of each episode
  2. Read high-quality reviews in your episodes
  3. Run a review contest
