I understand the search features in Soundcloud are attempting to be the most fair possible. I am posting Celtic music mostly and I use "celtic" in my titles.
I don't understand how my music still isn't showing up in searches and my site info is under an act that actually plays jazz but they call themselves Celtic Note?? Also above me in ranking are a site that admits it doesn't use original work and a few more that have been inactive for quite awhile...so what does it take to show up in my genre for those outside of the musicians who simply want to hear celtic music? I want to optimize myself in my genre and the playing field doesn't make sense to me.
I find it hard to believe that most of soundcloud is Rock,EDM and RAP or hip hop...acoustic and relaxing music doesn't seem to fit as well into the searches for people looking for this kind of music.
I hope this message doesn't come off as someone groaning...I'm really not, but I do work hard on my music and I want it to at least get a fair shake. Know what I mean?
Thank you for any suggestion you may have! Have a good day!
