Hi All.

Im new D.J and Producer under the soundcloud name "Patz (Official)". I'm a paid member. I don't have a lot of followers yet but i have close to 10K plays on my songs. When searching "Patz". My account is way below many other "Patz" usernames, with no sounds / followers etc..

Why as a paid active member im so low in the search results and what can be done?

Hi there,

This is due to "DiscoRanking". Please see here to learn how the SoundCloud search works (and what discoranking is): https://help.soundcloud.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003568168-Search-on-SoundCloud

I understand that i wouldn't be first. But my DiscoRank is much lower compared to other users with the same name but without any tracks or followers. I should Be around top 10 when searching my name. but actually im around number 60. Theres definitely something wrong here... People who search for my name want to here my tracks not to see users without any followers or tracks at all...

I have the same problem! Often when I am playing outside my country, people tried to find me on my name like: Thomas M or DJ Thomas M (or all combinations even), but they are not able to find me, even when my weblink to my account simply is: /djthomasm

Anyway, I am also a paying user, and in my opinion this system is crap, I am sorry, but it’s one of the negative points here of SoundCloud.
