What is the Trackable analytics prefix?
You can integrate with our completely free Trackable service to get detailed downloads data, demographics, attribution, and more on your dashboard.
With the Trackable prefix integrated into your podcast's RSS feed, any time a listener downloads an episode through any podcast player, Chartable logs some basic data (the device's IP address and which podcast app they're using), and then instantly redirects the listener to your episode's audio file.
Your listeners will not notice a delay, and personal information (names, email addresses, etc) is not collected. Chartable tracks billions of downloads per month for many major podcast publishers and networks, and our infrastructure is robust, reliable, and redundant.
Trackable can be installed by adding your team's analytics prefix to your show's RSS feed through your podcast hosting provider. Instructions can be found by navigating to the Integrations > Trackable page in your team's Chartable dashboard.
Once you have ensured that your team's Trackable prefix is integrated into the RSS feed, click "Refresh Trackable Status" on the Trackable page and wait 24-48 hours.
If you do not want to integrate through your hosting provider, another option is to utilize SmartFeeds to build Trackable into your feed automatically, while having the benefit of a portable and durable RSS feed. Note that this feature is in limited release, but will soon be available to everyone.
