Hi,

Thanks for visiting the Help Forum. Your new Profile URL and Display Name may not show up immediately in Google search. This is dependent on Google refreshing it's cache. Unfortunately we do not have control over this. You can try Google's public removal form to eliminate the previous link.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Best,
Gina
Hi Gina, I have a similar issue. I think I changed my url (2 years ago) and everything works fine. nwo I want to switch back to my old url and the system doesn't allow me, due to the fact, that the url is still there... or maybe the url is safed for "me" as an old user, I don't understand what happended to the url. can you help to switch back to my origin url?

actual: https://soundcloud.com/mittellos
old: https://soundcloud.com/loubudget

Hey Ludwig,

Chances are that someone else has created an account and chose this URL in the meantime, but then didn't do much with the account. Best way to find out if you can get the URL back is to follow the instructions in this article on our Help Center.

Hope this helps!

Cheers
