The ABC is not included in the Australian Ranker and thne Australian ranker does not include podcast listens from outside of Australia, which, for some podcasts have been reported to be more than half of that podcaster’s total listening. The ranker’s major purpose is to guide Australian advertisers in buying inventory on these podcasts, so the fact that the ABC is not listed and that there is additional listening outside Australia is not a major problem for what the ranker is aiming to achieve.
