We often talk of using social media, traditional media, and blogs as a way to promote podcasts and Blogtalkradio shows. Another consideration is to submit your show’s details to pocast directories. Different podcast directories attract different types of people, but for the most part they’re a way to catch the interest of search engines and like-minded people. What follows is a list of podcast directories for your consideration.
1. AllTop – Alltop isn’t specifically a podcast directory, but it is a popular directory site with a section for podcasts. Sumbit your feed for consideration and if approved, there’s a chance thousands of people a day will view your details. The brainchild of social media expert Guy Kawasaki, Alltop is one of the most popular directory sites on the web.
2. Podcast Alley – A top 10 podcasting site, podcasting directory allows registrants to submit podcasts and take part in community activities. Searching via niches, genres, podcasters and more is a cinch as Podcast Alley is one of the most user friendly podcast directories around.
3.Digital Podcast - Submit your show’s RSS feed for inclusion into the Digital Podcast directory. Members can search using the Digital Podcast search engine and even vote on each others’ podcasts.
4.All Podcasts – Submit a series, RSS feed or single podcasts for inclusion in this bare bones podcasting directory.
5. GigaDial – “The Podcast Factory.” A directory of podcasts and online radio stations offering a variety of subscription options.
