Apple keeps the exact algorithm a secret but they state that their podcast rankings are determined by a mixture of listening figures, the number of followers, and episode completion rates. These factors are seen as indicators of a show's quality.
Only Apple knows how often their charts are updated, but the rankings you see on Rephonic are updated daily.
In 2019, Apple announced that iTunes would be split into several apps, one of which is Apple Podcasts. Podcasts that were once on iTunes are now found on Apple Podcasts, which Rephonic provides the current rankings for.
The podcast charts are designed to help people discover new shows so it's not uncommon for break-out shows with few listeners to rank highly. Rankings are therefore not directly linked to audience size.
Rephonic provides a range of podcast stats to help users better understand a show's popularity, including estimated listener numbers, ratings, reviews, social reach and more.
Use Rephonic's search tool to find your show. Head to the podcast page and scroll down toward the bottom. If your show currently ranks in any country or category you'll see the position listed.
