The Australian Podcast Ranker lists the Top 200 podcasts from participating publishers that are consumed by listeners located in Australia. The All-Australian Top 200 Category Ranker lists only the Top 200 podcasts commissioned by an Australian publisher, consumed by listeners located in Australia.

The Australian Podcast Ranker is based on a calendar month reporting period. The entities listed are ranked by Monthly Listeners in accordance with the latest IAB Podcast Technical Measurement Guidelines. If you wish to sort by downloads, you can click on the “Downloads” column to re-sort amongst the existing data.

For podcasts with multiple categories in the RSS feed, we display and filter by only the first category.

The Top Sales Representatives ranker includes participating entities that have been delegated advertising sales responsibilities by a publisher, such as a third-party sales house, sales representation firm, or sales network.

  • Downloads - A ‘download’ is a unique file request that was downloaded. Downloads include complete file downloads, progressive downloads, as well as partial downloads in accordance with the IAB Podcast Measurement Technical Guidelines v2.1 filtering rules (i.e. spiders and bots, data centers, one-minute of content minimum download, etc.). This process filters multiple requests from the same IP address, user agent, episode and date.
