What we aren't going to cover: WordPress and Podcasting
A podcast is a series of audio or video digital-media files distributed over the Internet by syndicated download—through web feeds—to portable media players and personal computers. What is a Podcast? WordPress and Podcasting
Give your podcast files a human readable name. Please don't use nar009199.mp3. Try something like couchcast_seo_20080922.mp3.
Host your own podcast files. Unless you have thousands of downloads the bandwidth should be minimal. The biggest reason for doing this is all the search engine ”juice” comes to your site—not someone else’s.
RSS = Really Simple Syndication. Allows for distributing text and files over the Internet by subscription in people’s RSS Readers.
“ It’s like subscribing to a magazine that is delivered to you periodically but instead of it coming in your physical mail box each month when the magazine is published it is delivered to your ‘RSS Reader’ every time your favorite website updates.” (Darren Rose, ProBlogger.com)
