There are so many new things in the technology world today. The newest thing to hit the internet is called podcasting. What is Podcasting? Podcasting is a means of distributing audio and video programs via the Internet that lets users subscribe to a number of files, also known as “feeds”, and then hear or view the material at the time that they choose. A feed is usually in the MP3 audio format.

Home Business Exposure on Yahoo!
Copyright 2005 Ron LeBlanc
Everyone who has ever been on the internet has heard of
Yahoo! If you haven’t, then quit reading and go visit now.
Yahoo is such a popular site that my website ranking
toolbar from Alexa shows a number “1” under website
ranking…that’s popular. So it would probably be a good
idea to get some exposure on Yahoo! for your home business.
Here is a great way to get in at the beginning of a trend.
If you’ve never heard of a podcast, then you should
definitely get up to speed on what they are. In brief,
they are archived audio files usually in mp3 format that
you can download into your player such as an iPod. Hosting
those files is called podcasting. People can listen to you
whenever it is convenient for them.
Podcasting is in its infancy as of late 2005. Yes, there
are a lot of podcasts, but users are very few compared to
the total number of internet and iPod users. So how does
Yahoo! fit in? Well, one of the things about podcasts is
that they have usually been hard to find or search for.
None of the major search engines had done much with them as
of this writing.
Enter Yahoo! You can now go to podcasts.yahoo.com and
search for whatever you want. Many of the podcasts are
vocal in nature such as instruction or the old teaching
tapes. Here is your opportunity – home business is a very
frequently searched topic on any search engine, so it is
only a matter of time until it is frequently searched on
the Yahoo! podcast site as well. You can get traffic to
your site by making your own podcasts and submitting them
to a site that Yahoo! searches such as iPodder.
There probably won’t be an incredible amount of competition
for your home business for some time. Meanwhile, you have
the opportunity to be a step ahead and be seen as an
expert. You will be an expert by the time everyone else
figures out that they should get into podcasting too.
There is a great article on how to get started in
podcasting at the website MCPromotionsPress.com
This time in podcasting is like the times in the mid 90’s
when you could easily get great search engine ranking with
just a little effort. Your home business can get some
great exposure – Don’t miss the ride!
