Episode numbering allows you to have concise titles. You no longer need to type things like “Episode 42: The Meaning of Life”. You don’t need to type “Ep. 3 - The Magic Number” with the episode information in your title field. Add your title e.g. “The meaning of life”. The episode will default to “42” if you already have 41 episodes. Or you can add any episode number you want.
Episode numbering avoid typos and errors in manual formatting. It also lets podcast apps order your podcast in the best way for your listeners. It makes search more efficient too.
What if my listeners are using an app or platform that doesn’t support episode numbers?
That’s fine! We provide a title that these apps or platforms can read which includes your episode number. For example Episode 42 “The Meaning of Life” is displayed as “42. The Meaning of Life”.
My podcast already has episode numbers in the titles.
If you have tens, hundreds or thousands of existing episodes don’t worry. You don’t need to manually change the titles. Our auto numbering tool will work out which episodes they are. It does two things.
- It works out which episodes are which and adds the episode number tags for you
- It strips out any episode information from the title leaving you with concise titles. e.g. “Episode 42: The Meaning of Life” it’ll strip out “Episode 42:” for you leaving a nice, clean title; “The Meaning of Life”.
You’ll see a prompt on your dashboard to help you or you can check out our auto numbering tool.
If your podcast has seasons you are able to add a season tag. Once you add a season all new episodes default to that season. If your podcast doesn’t have seasons that’s fine, leave it blank.
