If you're new to SoundCloud or need further information on Stats in general here's how we count them and where you can view or access them.
In your Stats, you can now find extended information around the following topics:
- Audience and location
- Where on SoundCloud
- Websites, RSS and third-party apps (if you are a Pro Unlimited member)
After specifying a timeframe and type of activity (Plays, Likes, Reposts, Comments or Downloads), you can click through each section to view a ranking of (up to) 50 elements for each type of activity.
This way you can easily find out, for instance, your top played tracks, top listeners (by users, country or city), where on SoundCloud was your content most played from (from which app, playlist/album or from which recommendation algorithms) and which website, RSS feed or third-party app generated most plays.
Which of your tracks have had the most plays, likes, reposts, comments or downloads for the specified timeframe.
Audience and location
If you're a Pro user, click through each section to find out your top listeners, as well as the top countries and cities (requires a Pro Unlimited plan) where your selected content is generating most of the specified activity type.
Where on SoundCloud
The newest addition to the Stats, 'Plays from algorithms'*, allows any user to find out which recommendation algorithm (such as SoundCloud's related tracks, Stations or The Upload) is generating most activity for their content.
"The goal with each update we make is to provide creators with an even more granular look at their tracks, with as much insight as possible as to where track plays are coming from on the platform, right down to the feature where listeners are discovering and playing their tracks. Plays from algorithmic sources is the latest in the continued expansion and updates you'll see around creator, and specifically play source, stats."
Websites, RSS and third-party apps (Pro Unlimited feature)
If you are a Pro Unlimited user, click through the individual 'Websites, RSS apps or third-party apps' sections to find out which websites or apps are generating the most activity for your content.
* Note: Plays from SoundCloud’s algorithms stats only include data since November 1st 2016.
