What counts as a listen on Ausha?

Ausha rigorously follows the listens calculation method specified by the ACPM (updated April 1st, 2021). A listen is counted:

  • After the first second has been played on a listening platform (online listen) or when the file has been downloaded (offline listen).

  • For an individual listener within a period of 24 hours: If a listener plays an episode multiple times within a 24-hour period, only a single listen is counted.

This calculation method helps to avoid counting listens generated by bots or other fraudulent means.

Note: as we follow the calculation standards set by the ACPM, we are continually improving our bot detection tool and we exclude these from your listen counts.

Which platforms are included in my statistics?

Statistics on Ausha take into account all podcast listening platforms that read your show’s RSS feed: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Deezer, Podcast Addict, Google Podcasts, etc.

Soundcloud’s statistics are not taken into account (as listeners tune into audio files hosted on SoundCloud) and YouTube views are not taken into account (as the podcast is distributed via video files hosted on YouTube).

We hope this article has helped shed light on how your podcast’s statistics are calculated at Ausha!
