Podtrac Revises Top 20 Podcasts Chart for November 2019

The Podtrac November, 2019 Top 20 Podcasts rankings have removed two shows from American Media LLC. The firm has learned, via testing from James Cridland of Podnews, that an older version of a website player used by American Media downloads their podcasts without the user pressing play in the specific case of Android mobile users. Preloading content is not consistent with IAB V2 standards and the downloads were removed from the company's data.

Podtrac looked at the incidence of this player version across all of its measured podcasts, and other than this publisher, 0.1% of podcast downloads came from this same version of the player, and none of these came from the top 2,000 podcasts measured by Podtrac. The firm has added this version of the player to its blacklist and has notified the IAB Podcast Technical Working Group to do the same. Going forward downloads from this player will not be included in Podtrac counts.

Here is the revised chart:
