什么'苹果和剧集编号怎么回事?

苹果公司最近向所有播客发送了一封电子邮件,其中包含一系列合规性准则。尽管大多数准则都广受好评,但其中一项特别引起轰动:

苹果电子邮件01

Including episode numbers at the front of your episode 标题 is a common practice, so naturally, this guideline affects a large percentage of podcasters.

The very next day Apple sent out a second email to retract the statement that including episode numbers in your 标题s could result in your podcast being pulled from the Apple Podcasts app but it still left quite a mark on the podcasting community.

Now that the dust has had a chance to settle, what does this mean for podcasters moving forward? If you include episode numbers in your 标题s how does this affect your podcast?

Do you have to change your 标题s?

If you currently incorporate episode numbers in your 标题s (#1, 01, E1, Ep 1, etc.), 您无需进行任何更改。

相当多的时间以来,将插曲编号作为一种有用的工具就可以使听众在不同的插曲之间进行导航。在撰写此博客时,Apple是唯一显示情节编号的主要播客播放器(他们将其埋在情节中很深,因此只有在知道要看的地方才能发现它),因此播客使用<title>标签以确保其听众可以找到他们想要的东西。

苹果能否再次改变主意?

*是。

在收到第一封电子邮件的强烈反对之后,我们怀疑Apple是否会选择再次撤回,但肯定是可能的。

If Apple began demanding episode numbers be removed from 标题s, 芽菜 is prepared to roll out a bulk episode 标题 editor to make the transition painless (even if you have hundreds of episodes that need to be updated).

如果需要任何重大更改以使您的播客与任何重要的播客播放器保持兼容,则Buzzsprout将竭尽所能进行清晰的交流,并为您提供快速,轻松进行更新的工具。

As of right now, it seems Apple is listening to the podcast community and reversed course on their controversial stance against episode numbers in 标题s. We’ll update this blog if any of that changes.
