Learn about your audience with Stats

Once you have uploaded some tracks you can use SoundCloud Stats to understand who your audience is, where they are located, how they listen, and what tracks they like.

You can download the Pulse app to your mobile device to monitor your numbers or alternatively access Stats through the SoundCloud website. You can also upgrade your account to get deeper stats if you plan on getting really serious about your numbers and data.

Stats helps you measure the success of your tracks. You can review your play counts, likes, comments, reposts and downloads, discover which of your tracks are performing best and what countries and cities they’re most popular in. This can help with promo campaigns and give you insight on planning tours, if that’s on your to-do list.

How to take a deep dive on your SoundCloud stats

When viewing Stats for your account, you’ll see a bar chart showing activity over a specific period of time. The chart highlights your five most-popular tracks for the selected period of time.

Hovering over the bar chart provides more detailed information and gives you totals for each day. You can filter your view so that only stats for a specific track are displayed: click on a track title and you’ll see a line graph plotting activity over time.

Use the calendar feature at the top right hand of the page to review your account and see activity over a designated time period. You can customize a time period to coincide with your release or a campaign cycle to see how a track or artist has performed on SoundCloud.Click on a track and select the Overall option for a detailed look at a track’s stats over its lifetime. Analyzing a track – especially around key moments in a campaign – is a great way to help you make informed decisions for future campaigns.

Hi Mathis,

Was wondering why we aren't yet able to see our follower growth over time in our account statistics? It's important information for someone who wants to grow an audience on the platform.
Hi Mathis,

I've had a sudden uptake in listens on my latest track - to the point that it almost doesn't seem to be true. First off, it says I've over 70 listens from the Netherlands, but then none of the individual listeners are from there. Also have listeners that their account is some kind of Church group out of the State - this seems odd for a set on house music.

As far as I know I haven't done anything to my account to further promote a given track and I want to make sure these stats are accurate.

Thank you kindly!

Hi Anna,

I've responded here. Unfortunately, spam and fake activity are an ongoing battle for our Trust & Safety team, but they're constantly working to improve SoundCloud's detection and prevention systems.
Hi Mathis,

I've noticed in my stats that there are a number of plays attributed to 'other tracks'

How do I know if these plays are in fact of my material, or simply an error on Soundcloud's part?

If they are real plays is there a way of resolving the issue and showing the information more precisely? If not I'll likely have to change to another host.
