How to Leave A Podcast Review on Apple Podcasts (and why it matters)

Have you ever thought about leaving a rating or review on a podcast? When you listen to a podcast, consider leaving a review because it means so much to the pocaster in so many ways.

Content creators love to produce podcasts because they have valuable information to share to their audience. Podcasters love the writing, recording and producing that is involved in creating a podcast. For many podcasters it is truly a labor of love.

Most content creators don’t have sponsors or advertisers. This means the "currency" for many of these shows comes in the form of ratings and reviews.

Why Does It Matter?

Like most social media platforms, potential listeners find podcasts via Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Search options like show descriptions, show notes, and show titles are ranking factors that drive people to the best podcast that fits the search description.

A podcaster controls the content that makes it on to the podcast, but not the ratings and reviews. The more 5-star ratings and comments that a podcast has accumulated, the better the SEO results.

When you write that review, you get a podcaster to smile. Well, at least this podcaster.
