Mathew Passy The best way I have seen someone maximize their use of ratings and reviews is Dan Cummins Timesuck Podcast. For every 100 reviews posted, he releases a special bonus episode and he lets the fans vote on the topic. Reviews pour into the show and he reads a few in the show update. It has helped him build a huge bank of reviews, which while having no impact on your ranking, do let people know whether or not you produce a quality product. It has also helped him to build a huge community with real engagement. I think it's a fascinating idea. Won't work for every type of podcast but I think this was one integral piece in his show's early success. 24:52 Article on iTunes Reviews 26:33 How do I make it easy to send audio clips into my show?
