New TalkShoe Cash. We’re continuing to write checks monthly but it is now based upon # of downloads instead of number of hours. This was done to make it more fair for short shows, and how many ads can be placed in a show. See the Forum for more details.

TalkShoe Cash Referrals are now shown in detail on your reports. They’re listed for each referral. Why not contact those people who haven’t yet hosted a show.

Detailed Statistics on downloads and hours are now available for each episode for each week. The stats button is now on your myTalkShoe page.

More Featured Shows are now listed. 10 are shown, and more can be randomly rotated. Making it to the Featured List is based on show popularity, # of episodes, show topic, and show rating.

TalkShoe Traffic and Performance

| Author: TalkShoe Team | In Announcements, What's New Print This Post

Over the past 6 weeks, the usage of TalkShoe has grown by leaps and bounds. Over the past month alone, TalkShoe has seen both its web traffic and live show participants grow by a factor of 10x. On Sunday, Dec. 3rd, we had the largest live Talkcast show with 930 participants, which was a 2x increase over the previous record. It is safe to say this was the largest interactive podcast ever.

Some users have experienced performance issues with the TalkShoe website, and the live software interface.

Here’s the scoop:
- Bandwidth for traffic & web audio streaming is more than sufficient, and our ISP partner has more where that came from.
- Tomcat, Apache and database access servers are being added along with clustering software.
- The linux operating system is being upgraded.
- The TalkShoe application and database software are being continually optimized.

We’re racing to improve performance and provide a high level of service. Onward and upward.
