Best Tips for Naming Your Crime Podcast


  • Keep it short: Aim for a concise name that’s easy to remember and won’t be truncated in podcast directories.
  • Use 1-3 keywords max: Make your podcast searchable/SEO-rich by adding 1-3 keywords in the name, but avoid keyword stuffing it.
  • Keep it relevant: Make sure your podcast name reflects your show’s topic or theme.
  • Say it out loud: Test your podcast name by saying it aloud to make sure it sounds good and rolls off the tongue.
  • Make it easy to say/spell: Avoid complicated or obscure words and spellings that might confuse potential listeners.
  • Avoid the word ‘podcast’: Your show is already listed in podcast directories, so you don’t need to include the word ‘podcast’ in the name.
  • Avoid existing show names: Research similar podcast names and avoid using one that’s already taken to prevent confusion.
  • Get feedback from peers: Ask for honest feedback from friends or colleagues to gauge their thoughts and impressions of your podcast name.
  • Use name generators: Utilize podcast name generators to help brainstorm ideas and generate unique and creative names.
