I would like to discuss the importance of rating your favorite podcast. By rating your favorite podcast, it helps the podcastER, know how well he or she is doing. In addition, it helps to change the search positions or rank. It can also change the order in which the search results are presented. Thus, The more you rate a podcast, the more popular it becomes, the easier it is for others to find your favorite podcast.
I say all this because, we as podcaster’s need your feedback, sure it’s nice receiving wonderful e-mails from you, but it’s even more important for us to recieve your ratings. It’s not hard, Just go on itunes, blueburry, podcast ally, where ever the source is, just rate it! You have no idea how much this helps!!
While I am on the subject, another good reason why you should rate your podcast and or webcast is, it takes a lot of work to produce a podcast feed. You may not realize it, but to produce a podcast, sometimes a lot of research, editing, retouching, converting, uploading, paying for hosting, so YOU can download files for free….
Believe me, its not about just getting on a mic, and think about a hot topic to talk about. It can take hours just to produce one podcast. It’s nice if podcasters’ can not only know how well they are doing, but let other podcast listeners, what you recommend. So please take the time to rate your podcasts. it only takes less than a minute….
A quick word about public domain/creadtive commons & podcasting……………….
Free and legal media are extremely valuable; in all aspects of the internet, including itunes. When I purchased my first video ipod, there was barely any free movies to download. There are many talented, unknown Producers, artists, performers, that are waiting to be discovered. Public domain allows us to stay in touch with our history. We need more podcasters to come out, and take their technical abilities and use them for good use. There are literally over 350+ million people who own ipod videos alone; there is no reason why so little of us are making podcasting available.
In July 1956, the five-member Barstow family of Wethersfield, Connecticut, won a free trip to newly-opened Disneyland in Anaheim, California, in a nationwide contest. This 30-minute amateur documentary film tells the fabulous story of their fun-filled, dream-come-true, family travel adventure, filmed on the scene at Walt Disney’s “Magic Kingdom” by Robbins Barstow.
In December 2008, “Disneyland Dream” was named to the National Film Registry by the Librarian of Congress. You can watch this podcast by clicking download just below.
College student Nan Barlow visits the village of Whitewood as research for her paper on witchcraft in New England, particularly the case of Elizabeth Selwyn. Her tutor, Professor Alan Driscoll(Lee), recommends the Raven’s Inn, run by a Mrs. Newless. Rather unwisely, given the amount of low-hanging fog outside(and against the advice of Mrs. Newless), Nan takes an immediate interest in the basement.
