Darknet Diaries stats and analytics for 2018
Jan 1, 2018 - Dec 31, 2018Total downloads
1,257,175Downloads per day
Each spike is an episode release day. Except for some which were caused by either a Tweet from a popular account, mentioned on a podcast, featured in an article, trending in a podcast app, or being featured in a podcast app.
In around August there is a significant rise in daily downloads. This is due to a Tweet from Internet of Shit which linked to Pocket Casts, which resulted in the show trending there all the way up to #2 which resulted in many new listeners. Then a few weeks later I won a contest with Castbox where they promoted my show because I won which got me a few more thousand listeners.
But what beats all that is all the word of mouth that listeners have been doing. A lot of listeners have said they've told their friends and got everyone in their office to listen to the show. Amazing and thank you!
