Triton Digital's Podcast Metrics measurement service is certified by the IAB Tech Lab as complying with Version 2.1 of the IAB Podcast Measurement Technical Guidelines.


The Canadian Sales Network Ranker lists the Top Sales Networks in Canada, as measured by Podcast Metrics. Participating Networks include content owners/creators and sales representation organizations. Networks have the option to have their downloads and listeners aggregated into another entity to which they have specifically delegated advertising sales responsibilities, such as a third-party sales house, sales representation firm, or sales network. In addition, the Network may have its downloads and listeners reported separately.

The Canadian Podcast Ranker lists the Top 100 podcasts from participating publishers that are consumed by listeners located in Canada. The All-Canadian Top 30 English Category Ranker lists only the Top 30 English language podcasts commissioned by a Canadian publisher, consumed by listeners located in Canada. The All-Canadian Top 30 French Category Ranker lists only the Top 30 French language podcasts commissioned by a Canadian publisher, consumed by listeners located in Canada.

The Canadian Podcast Ranker is based on 4 or 5 week reporting periods (Monday to Sunday) that align closely with a calendar month. The reporting calendar, using Average Weekly Download, improves trendability by minimizing the impact of the varying length of calendar months and other factors that can impact media consumption. Participating entities that opt-in for measurement are included. Downloads are measured under the latest IAB Podcast Technical Measurement Guidelines.

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

The Ranker includes the participation of the following Sales Networks: All Things Comedy, Audioboom, Beasley Media Group, CBC / Radio-Canada, Cloud10, Cogeco Media, Cumulus Podcast Network, Focus On the Family, NBCUniversal News, NPR, Paramount, Québecor, Salem Podcast Network, SiriusXM Podcast Network, Soundrise, The Roost Podcast Network, TPX Podcast Network, Wondery.


  • 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.
