Podcast Analytics

Before Backtracks

Historically podcasters and advertisers could not tell if someone that downloaded a podcast actually played it. Data was not verified. Spreadsheets were mailed around with people adding zeros to the end of cells. It was the dark ages.

With Backtracks

Not only can Backtracks Podcast Analytics tell you if a download resulted in a play, we collect an extraordinary depth of audio and listener data. Track listener engagement like how long a listener listened, not just simple counts. Learn what's working and what's not in your podcast content and ads. Get an unfair advantage with the ultimate in podcast analytics. Data can be a beautiful thing.
