The easiest way to get started is to do a Google search for the “best [niche] podcasts”:
The workload like this whatsapp number list allows both the vendor and the affiliate to focus on. Clicks are the number of clicks coming to your website’s URL from organic search results.

However, you should keep in mind that some podcasts on this list are huge. And if you’re just starting out, it could be challenging to be featured there.
An alternative method is to identify someone of similar caliber in your industry who has appeared on multiple podcasts. For example, in personal finance, Morgan Housel has guested on many podcasts.
We’ll paste his site into Ahrefs’ Site Explorer, go to the Backlinks report, and type his name in the “Include” box.

Here, you’ll find a list of podcasts he’s been on.
Step 2. Pitch yourself as a guest
Find the email of the podcast hosts, then reach out to see if they’re willing to interview you.
But don’t pitch blindly. Make sure you first listen to a few episodes of the podcast. This will help you write a personalized email and suggest relevant topic ideas.

5. First Round - The Review
Number of referring domains: 8,380
Estimated organic traffic: 16,200
Number of keywords they rank for: 77,100
First Round Capital is a seed-stage venture capital (VC) firm that has invested in companies like Uber, Warby Parker, and Notion.
Why are they doing so well?
First, they differentiated themselves against other VC blogs.
Most VC firms at the time were either blogging about market trends or opinion pieces from their partners. First Round decided to provide stories from the operator-side (i.e., startups) instead. This is what sets First Round apart from the rest.
Second, they’re relentlessly focused on their target audience.
Think about it. While market trends or opinion pieces are interesting, they don’t target the VCs’ real target audience: new or potential founders.
The people who are interested in those articles are the VCs themselves. Startup founders are interested in content that can help solve real problems—product development, hiring, marketing, etc.
And that’s where First Round excelled.
They knew their target audience was interested in real stories about founding or managing a company. They also knew that given their existing portfolio of startups, they were in a unique position to reach out, interview and tell these stories.
This is how First Round has, as Jimmy Daly describes it, “earned a reputation as one of the best publishers of startup and tech content on the web”, where they regularly get recommended by others:
