Podcast Transcription – What does it mean?
Before we get into podcast transcription, let’s first address what podcasts are. I’m sure everyone by now already knows what podcasts are. For those who don’t, no, they’re not a spaceship or some kind of doughnut. Even though it sounds like either of them. Wikipedia says a podcast is a form of digital media that consists of an episodic series of audio, video, digital radio, PDF, or ePub files, subscribed to and downloaded through web syndication or streamed online to a computer or mobile device. The word is a portmanteau of “(i)Pod” and “broadcast.” The Merriam Webster Tenth International Collegiate defines “podcast” as: a program (as of music or talk) made available in digital format for automatic download over the Internet.
In simple language, it basically means a radio show you can download. Below is the worldwide accepted official icon of podcasts. I don’t know why, maybe it’s because it’s purple, or hypnotizes you, I guess:
Podcasts are different from your regular radio or TV talk shows, because you can download them on your device and listen to them as many times as you’d like. Podcasts are fun, and can be on a number of topics. From financial podcasts to IT development, gaming, web design and development, and digital photography. From weight loss, politics, music, movies, religion, creativity, lovemaking (yes, lovemaking!), life, beauty, business, philosophy, aliens, batman, superman, etc. And many, many more! How can podcasters get more subscribers? Do they need to do a rain dance! Fortunately there is a simpler way. Search for a podcast transcription service
Podcast Transcription to improve your website’s ranking.
Let’s get one thing straight, your podcasts need to be original (more original than this post). More entertaining podcasts, and proper marketing gets you more viewers. That much is not rocket science. But if you use a professional podcast transcription service to create ready-made content in the form of SEO optimized articles for your website or blog, you guarantee more visibility. The text needs to be entertaining to read, and formatted and optimized properly for SEO. Google loves this. Google or other search engines don’t crawl your website daily, unless you ask them to. So during a weekly website crawl, Google needs to see there’s been activity on your website. And not just any activity, but proper, readable, shareable, helpful activity in the form of content. Bill Gates wasn’t wrong when he said “Content is King”. When you use a podcast transcription service to have your podcasts transcribed and added to your website/blog, search engines see that as content. This makes your podcasts not only easily searchable, but tells the search engines that they have new, fresh content on their website. What this also does is boost your ranking in SERPs (Search Engine Ranking Pages) on all premier search engines, especially Google. So people can easily find you. At the end of the day, whether you’re doing this to make money or to help people, getting easily found is the goal, right? Podcast transcription also immensely helps hearing-disabled people. Which ultimately expands your user base.
