iTunes Can't Be Trusted
Jul 18, 2006 00:02:29

All podcasters owe their audiences in large part to iTunes, but iTunes still makes no sense.

I search in iTunes for 'mmorpg' and sorted by 'relevance'.

The results are imaged below, with the suspects highlighted.

1. The top ranked return hasn't done an episode since February.
2. The CGW podcast is good, but rarely covers MMOs.
3. Runecast is largely regarded as one of the worst podcasts of all time. Look at its reviews.

-I haven't see the SecondLife video cast at #2 yet, but it is popular and is current.
-Guildcast clearly fits and makes sense here.
-VirginWorlds. Okay it is ranked high but it slipped out of the top 4 so I'm grumpy.

Unscientific finding: iTunes needs to refine their relevance and popularity measurements.
