Hi there,

Please see here to learn why there are ads on SoundCloud in the first place: https://help.soundcloud.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003447287-Ads-on-SoundCloud-

For an ad free experience, you can upgrade to our SoundCloud Go or SoundCloud Go+ subscription. https://soundcloud.com/go

Mathis you and all your coworkers can suck my dick. Fuck you and your faggot asses. I cant even listen to music in peace without a thirty second fucking ad of some bitch complaining about crohns disease. I hope you kids get crohns disease mathis u fat fucking money hungry piece of dog shit. FUCK YOU

Boy I thought the whole “2 ads per song, sometimes video ads too” shite was just a mobile thing, but I see the plague has spread to the website.

 

Remember the good old days when the website didn’t really have ads, only the app did? But now, here we are, dishing them out several in a row.

 

I also remember when this place had a soul and wasn’t a Spotify rip.

w o a h  n o  s h i t. Why did it increase to two instead of linking the article and sponsoring Go+. We know it exists because it has a special tab for itself and is constantly in the top left corner. And guess what there’s ads for it too. Woah. 

You don’t have ANY advertisers here in Spain, so we get to hear the same bloody SoundCloud Go+ ad over, and over, and over, and over again. You’re not actually making any ad revenue, and you’re just pissing off your listeners. Good job!

It’s tedious to say the least, and your implementation of web audio sucks too, so I am listening to ad free Mixcloud instead. I encourage all your disgruntled listeners to the same!

So I am kind of hypocritical when it comes to this stuff, I’ll admit. I like free content like youtube videos and the essentially free music that I could listen to through soundcloud, and I also strongly dislike ads. I am ok with ones that are not annoying and are actually for something I might actually be interested (why I am fine with companies tracking me for targeted ads) but almost all the time I get some laundry ad that super annoying of a guy badly singing about the stain on his pants or something. That one is EXTREMELY infuriating and I get it about half the time. As soon as I hear it I reload the page to skip the ad or just strait up close soundcloud and go somewhere else for my music.  I used to not get any ads since I have adblock plus on chrome but it seems they have found a work around recently. And like this threads topic says, I get them way to often. If I got one maybe every 8 to 10 songs I wouldn’t mind as much but I am literally being driven insane by ads. I swear the ads I get on soundcloud are the most terrible ads I have ever heard and it essentially secures those companies spot in my “never buy from these companies” classification just because of their ads.
