How to Optimize Your Podcast Host Bio with Keywords

Did you know that strategically placing keywords within your podcast host bio can significantly enhance your discoverability? What do I mean by podcast host? Your podcast host, be it Buzzsprout, Captivate, Spotify for Podcasters, or others, serves as a gateway for your listeners to find you in the podcast player apps.

Why do you want to optimize your podcast description?

As your potential listeners navigate through podcast player apps like Apple, YouTube Music, and Spotify, they are actively searching for specific keywords or phrases relevant to their interests.

So, lets say that I want to listen to episodes about social media marketing, if you have the key word social media marketing in your podcast description than you are more likely to show up as a show that I should listen to!

When you think about optimizing your podcast bio you want to place keywords strategically throughout your bio.

Imagine the impact it could have on new listeners finding you by making your podcast more searchable and increasing the likelihood of attracting an audience that is genuinely interested in your content.

Where to place keywords?

Where are the best place to have keywords that you want to be found for?

  1. Your Podcast title - you should most definitely have a keyword or phrase in your podcast title

  2. Your podcast description - this is also a place you should have keywords or phrases that you would like to be found for

  3. Your episode titles should have a keyword or keyword phrase

  4. Your episode descriptions should include keywords or phrases

  5. The author field - this is in your podcast host and you can have a keyword here. For example if I had a show on social media marketing I would say Liz Chapman, social media strategist

Why are keywords important for your podcast?
