So all my RSS feeds (iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn, et cetera) are an enhanced PodTrac url that reference my SoundCloud RSS and I've been having some issues within PodTrac lately ...
So to start, the plays numbers on Podtrac's website seemed to be inflated when I had this " http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/
" in the "Stats service URL prefix " option. (It appeared as though PodTrac counted the RSS numbers twice) ...
So I moved " http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/
" to the "Subscriber redirect" option and that apparently broke my feed, as PodTrac had trouble reading / updating it ...
So, my question, if I just leave those two fields blank on https://soundcloud.com/settings/content
, will PodTrac still know my subscriber totals since all the RSS feeds reference the enhanced url, or do I need that redirect link somewhere?
(And I'm fine just tracking plays stats in SoundCloud if need be, but it is nice to have the numbers match up.)
PS -- Not sure if this is a result of the new way SoundCloud counts RSS stats, but the timing seems to work.
