Podcast Ratings On Your Site

March 11, 2006 on 2:04 am

We love badges! Not only are they oh-so-web 2.0 and cool-looking, but hey, they make it easy to do stuff. The podcast ratings badge makes it easy for your audience to rate your podcast or video shows on Yahoo!.

Show off your Yahoo! Podcasts rating (based on a 5-star scale) right on your own site. After you add a badge, it’s drop-dead easy for visitors to add a rating and review. Just tell us how you want the badge to look and a little about your podcast. Copy, paste, and presto – you’re up and running.

Here’s where to get it: http://podcasts.yahoo.com/publish/ratings

Try it out and let us know what you think.

(You can also add action buttons to your web site to make it easy for people to find, use, and share your content. To learn more, click here: http://publisher.yahoo.com/social_media_tools/)

We’ve Got Vidcasts

January 4, 2006 on 6:00 pm

Yahoo! Podcasts now supports vidcasts as well as podcasts! Click to watch the video of your favorite shows – it’s as easy as listening directly from your web browser.

Coming this week: A selection of vidcasts from CES (the huge Consumer Electronics Show that takes place January 5-8 in Las Vegas). We’re especially excited about the keynote from Terry Semel, Yahoo!’s CEO. Terry will be live at CES at 9:00 a.m, Friday, January 6. Check out Yahoo! Podcasts later in the day to watch podcast.

Not familiar with vidcasts yet? Here’s a selection of some we’ve been enjoying lately: PodTravels.TV – Tuscany, 64mm Skateboarding Vlog, and the Frenchpod Class.

Let us know what you’re watching, rate your favorites, and submit the RSS feeds of vidcast you can’t currently find in our directory.

My Subscriptions

December 14, 2005 on 11:58 am

Today we launched Yahoo! Music Engine or iTunes for example), this makes it easy for you to re-subscribe or manage your subscriptions on more than one computer (at home and at work), with just a few clicks.

If you listen to podcasts directly in the web browser, now you can keep track of what’s new. Even better, you can also view an up-to-date list of new episodes of your favorite podcasts right on your My Yahoo! page.

Yahoo! Podcasts Badges

November 11, 2005 on 9:00 am
Ever since we launched (back in October), people have asked us about making a Yahoo! Podcasts badge available. Some of you even went so far as to create badges for us. (btw, Thanks!)

Well, now we’ve got them. The badge is a clickable icon that links back directly to your series page on Yahoo! Podcasts, so your listeners can easily rate, review, and subscribe to your show (or just add a tag). The badge makes it one-click simple for your audience to interact with your podcasts. All you need to do is copy and paste the code from here onto your podcast page(s).

   

Tell other podcasters about it, too.

Listen to the Internet with Yahoo! Podcasts

October 9, 2005 on 11:02 pm

I’m finally able to talk about Yahoo! Podcasts, now in public beta. This new source for online audio programming uses Yahoo! Search to make it easier than ever to find and subscribe to audio content and listen wherever and whenever you want.

Chances are you’re already tuned in to podcasting — sipping from the fire hose of audio programming that’s been pouring out onto the Net. From President, Bitterest Pill, wine reviews, NASA to Chinese language lessons — there are podcasts about nearly everything. But with new shows popping up all the time, it can be a challenge to cut through the clutter and find content that’s relevant and interesting to you.

Yahoo! Podcasts offers a comprehensive directory of podcast series and individual shows from across the Web, complete with detailed search results, most popular and highest rated lists, editorial picks, and a full collection of tools you can use. These community tools include ratings, reviews, and the ability to tag audio content, or view the tags that other people add. Why waste time on noise instead of signal —Yahoo! Podcasts can help you discover tasty stuff to feed your ears.

Our web-based player makes it simple and painless to listen right through your web browser. An accelerated playback feature (IE only) lets you “scan” a program at 2x speed to get the gist of it faster. You can use Yahoo! Podcasts with aggregators like Yahoo! Music Engine (the integration is beautiful!), iTunes, and with the latest version of iPodder, the Windows Media Player and even Winamp. Or, you can download the shows you want to any mp3 player, such as the iPod, iRiver, Dell DJ, Creative Zen, etc.

But wait, there’s more ahead… We’re already working on personalized podcast recommendations and friendly, easy-to-use tools so that anyone can create and publish a podcast or audio blog and share it with friends, family, coworkers, and the World Wide Web.

Needless to say, we eagerly await your feedback and your opinions. Please stop by and rate the podcasts you already enjoy. If you notice that we’re missing something, you can submit a podcast feed URL here. The more you participate, the better it gets for publishers and listeners alike.

Yahoo! Podcasts beta is also available on Yahoo! Next.

Time to put your ear to the ground and listen to what the Internet is saying.
