    Hey guys,

    I was thinking, what are podcasts good for ? Is it good to get exposure on a website ?

    If I want to get more traffic, is a podcast a good idea ?

    How long are podcasts in general ?

    Podcasts are good for listening to. I know I wouldn't subscribe to anything that was purely marketing hyperbole, but if you have something to say about an interesting topic, a well-done podcast can definitely raise your profile.

    Yes, it can raise your status of being seen as an expert. And, of course, by submitting your podcasts to all the podcast directories, you'll get massive backlinks to your site.
