ABOUT THE U.S. SALES NETWORK AND PODCAST RANKERS
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 U.S. Sales Network Ranker lists the Top 20 Sales Networks in the U.S., as measured by Podcast Metrics. The entities listed are ranked by Average Weekly Downloads and Average Weekly Users in the reporting period who are located in the United States.
The U.S. Podcast Ranker lists the Top 100 Podcasts consumed by users who are located in the United States. The entities listed are ranked by Average Weekly Downloads and Average Weekly Users.
The U.S. 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 and User metrics, 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 and Users are measured in accordance with the latest IAB Podcast Technical Measurement Guidelines.
