Soundcloud success but I don't know how
GreyB GreyB is offline 06-05-2013, 15:27 PM

So, I've had a Soundcloud account for some years which has pretty much just ambled along with the odd person playing a track or two.

And then, a few months ago, it suddenly burst into life with one track (The Lark's Lament by GreyBrow on SoundCloud - Hear the world?s sounds) receiving between 100 and 200 plays A DAY!

Lovely, but I have no idea why or where all these people are coming from as I have never promoted my Soundcloud account in my life. I now have nearly 13,000 plays of which getting on for 9,000 are just from this track.

Out of interest, does anyone have a better understanding of how Soundcloud works than I do and where all these hits might be coming from.

Thanks!

GB

And here we are, two months later, and my total plays have just gone through 20,000 with nearly 16,000 on the one track with no sign of things slowing down. How odd!

Just to enjoy the moment, The Lark's Lament has just passed 20,000 individual plays on Soundcloud. Still no idea where they're coming from but it's very nice to see.

Thumbs up

I've been meaning to post on this thread for quite some time now, because I'd also be fascinated if my Soundcloud page had hits like you are getting Grey!!

Also as a web designer I'd be trying to find the source on google ect....

It's really cool Grey! I hope you find the reason behind the hits. There must be one, because Soundcloud accounts are very hard to boost unless you are constantly on the pimp and on the return the rate tip on there, which I doubt you are very much

Long may your exposure continue Ess x
