Unpacking the Potential: Podcast Transcription for SEO and Accessibility

So, you've started your podcast with PodApp. The press record and speak functionality gives you the freedom to easily voice out your thoughts. Your podcast has been nurtured with love, passion, and an unwavering dedication to your chosen subject. Now, you want to ensure that not just the ears, but also the eyes can enjoy your content. You want to reach out to platforms where audio is not the primary medium. You ponder, how exactly can one do that? Well, the answer is simple – Podcast Transcription.

Discovering the Hidden Potential

Transcription isn't new. Many industries have been using it for years for a variety of reasons. But, when it comes to podcasting, despite the rise in popularity, transcription is still a vastly untapped aspect, perhaps due to misconceptions about its function. However, the potential of podcast transcription to enhance your podcast's SEO, accessibility and reach is profound.

Why turn your spoken words into written text? Isn't podcasting all about the audio experience? Let's take a look.

Break the Audio Barrier with Text

Podcasts are primarily audio. While this medium is great in many ways, one cannot overlook the fact that it may also restrict reach. The inclusion of written text, in the form of transcriptions, can increase the scope of your podcasts tremendoulsy, breaking any barriers that solely audio content may pose for certain individuals.

Amplify Accessibility

Transcriptions make podcasts accessible to otherwise underserved listener populations, such as the Deaf and hard-of-hearing community, or non-native English speakers who might appreciate the support of written text. Adding subtitles in the video version of podcasts can also reach a wider audience.

PodAppAI can generate these transcripts using its remarkable AI technology, paving the way for your podcasts to touch as many lives as possible.

The SEO Factor

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the other key factor motivating podcast transcription. A transcript enables search engines to crawl through the content of a podcast, improving discoverability effectively.

Think about this. A user searching for a topic that you've covered in a podcast is likely to land on your page if you have rich, informative content, correctly indexed by search engine bots. The more SEO-oriented your content is, the higher it'll rank, thereby increasing organic traffic.
