Your podcasts are a great source of information for many people. You’ve put a lot of hard work on your podcasts and this hard work may have resulted in more people listening to your regular podcasts but without proper archiving you will throw all of your hard work out the window.
You should have a good plan for archiving your podcasts so that your listeners can go back to their favorite podcasts anytime. Archiving your podcasts will also give new listeners a chance to go back to podcasts they have missed.
Archiving is also a great way for podcasters to get additional benefits from the content that they produce. Aside from the aforementioned way of enticing new listeners and giving established listeners a way to go back to favorite episodes, the additional content will give heft to the podcaster’s site in case he has one. This will be a great way of driving more traffic to the web site.
