A new way to manipulate the Apple Podcast Charts

May 23, 2018

Another day, another new way of manipulating the Apple Podcast Charts (see examples from May 13 and May 16). Airtasker, an Australian tasks-based website similar to TaskRabbit, currently carries this ad - and many others similar:

I'm looking for 6-12 people for this task. This will involve going to the Apple retail (physical) store and subscribing to a podcast on the iPhones and iPads on display to improve my podcast rankings. In total you should do 35 devices and this will take 15 mins. - screenshot

The price being paid for this task is AUD$15 (US$12). The poster is "Darren H", a podcaster from North Adelaide, who has made at least ten different tasks, all for Thursday 24th May. That's tomorrow. Might be interesting to watch the (Aussie) charts...
