I might be biased but I’d have to say Podcast Insights is the best podcasting website and resource around! Many comments and emails have said the same thing, so maybe there’s a sliver of truth to that. Have a look around and check out the search feature in the navigation menu.
But we know there are many great podcasting blogs and wanted to highlight them here. Enjoy!

What is Ahrefs rank? It’s basically a ranking of how popular a website is. Typically the more links you have to your site, the better your ranking. A lower number is better in this case. These rankings change daily, but I got the snapshot of everyone’s site on the same day.
Note: because Libsyn has many of their customer’s podcasts hosted on their website, the link count and ranking appears to be much higher. That’s not to say they don’t have an amazing blog and podcast on all things podcasting though!
Libsyn is one of the most popular podcast hosting companies and they have a very active blog and podcast on all things podcasting.
