    I was wondering if anyone ever tried to work these sites? I know they count views but they also count votes (livemixtapes) and streams (datpiff) is there a way or has someone made something that could work on these sites?

    Lol it would. Hopefully someone thought of it before me. I'm thinking there are bots out there that have give views+votes so i figure it could work. Or make a credit based system like vaget except for music sites

    i've been planning to do something with this a long time lol.
    plays & streams are the easier part.

    I've been wondering how to bot the downloads part too.

    sounds like a good idea...
    i'm sure plenty of artist would be interested in purchasing views/plays

    You believe the traffic volume is worth it?

    What that traffic means to a label is worth it. Have a rapper that has a mixtape and tops datpiff with a shit load of downloads? Damn, you're pretty much signed.

    I don't think anyone would sign an artist using datpiff statistics as a metric of popularity, especially since if they were to search for traces of that popular sentiment throughout the net and find nothing, they'd know it's not organic interest.

    Plus, wouldn't people start posting negative comments about it in the comment section?

    You underestimate the power the internet has on the hip hop industry. Once your mixtape starts getting buzz on a major site like datpiff then hip hop bloggers start mentioning you. Then it starts snowballing. Look out how much traffic 2dopeboyz.com gets. It's really how all artists get big on their own, a great example is Tyler the Creator who got buzz simply from blogs.

    And yeah if you aren't legit you will get hated on. You really need to be half decent to get love.

    No I definitely agree that an internet buzz is crucial in landing any sort of music deal, specifically (if not exclusively) in hip hop. But I see where you're going with this, and I wasn't looking at it in that context. You were seeing it as a potential service you could sell to artists that want some recognition. In that way, it would be valuable, I agree.

    I think the owner is on this site. He goes by Airkat and I know he hangouts for sure at IQ69.com (NSFW)

    I own a few and I started doing an internet tv show but its languished because I'm busy building up sites. New episode Labor day weekend. I don't know I'd say they're "hot" but I get demos/mixtapes/links to media every day. I'm building up both ends. Sites that pull in leads/demos/bands/artists, and sites that push their stuff. What would you like to know? I'm starting to think there's a market to sell leads to offline promoters. I get these guys trying to data mine my sites and sending me dumb emails trying to get me to HELP them data mine my sites. Or heck, how about instead of LendingTree, do PromoterTree. Where promoters compete for your band. Band posts budget, promoters bid or something like that. I have no time to implement these ideas... LOL.

    A Vagex style bot that supported multiple services could make bank. Heck, charge for the bot and access to the server plus upsell credits. Or sell the server software too for people to setup their own independent regionalized promo bot teams. Sell ads in the software too. All the wannabe rapper kids with a little bit of pocket money would buy it. Which is about 5% of all the wannabe rapper kids. But there's a LOT of them.

    2dopeboyz take their own music submissions and not once have they ever linked to Datpiff. You have it backwards. It starts on the major hip hop blogs first, and then they drop a mixtape.

    this is only good, if it transfers into sales via itunes or physical CD's Music is different maybe u will get someone to Download the mixtape cause of the views however once they hear the material it won't prompt someone to buy a download or a CD which is the goal...music is one of those things u can't trick the consumer u need to be good at what u do, for people to buy it. Everyone has ears and everyone knows garbage when they hear it, this is only useful for those artist who are really good at there craft and wanna generate a buzz. Then that buzz might carry over into sales.
