Optimize Your Show for Siri and Alexa

November 17, 2020

Siri and Alexa can help listeners find and subscribe to your show on Apple Podcasts. 

With the availability of the new HomePod mini and the international expansion of Alexa support in additional countries, it’s a great time to optimize your show and episode for voice discovery and playback.

These are some best practices to consider:

  • Keep show titles concise. Listeners are more likely to remember a short title.
  • Include an <itunes:author> tag. This tag defines the show’s creator name.

Spread the word on your show, or through your marketing channels, like your website or social media accounts, to reach new listeners.
