What is the Trackable analytics prefix?

You can integrate the Trackable RSS feed prefix, for free, 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 device information), 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. Third party RSS feed prefixes are extremely popular among podcasts!  According to Livewire Labs, at least one tracker was found on 13.37% of new podcast episodes published in July 2022, with Chartable's Trackable prefix on 5.10% of new episodes.
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.
