Preventing and Surviving a Podjacking

By Erik Marcus
I started my show October of 2004, and have slowly built my audience over the past year of podcasting. My first shows got barely a hundred listeners. But by last month, my audience was approaching 1500 people. Those may not be huge numbers, but I was proud of the relatively rapid growth in my audience. It came from a lot of hard work.

Then, out of the blue a few weeks ago, my audience collapsed overnight — it dropped by some 75 percent. My podcast had been “podjacked.”

If you’re involved in podcasting, you need to know about podjacking. This article will tell you what podjacking is, how to avoid becoming a victim, and how to take action if it happens to you.
