    Anyway... I was doing well using follow first method on soundcloud. I was doing 200 follows a day until I hit the 2000 limit and then I would unfollow 200 a day and repeated this cycle... I started doing 210 follows for a few days and then I got greedy and did 250 unfollows.

    Well I got the first warning so I stopped for 24 hours and then started following again... After I followed about only 25 people I got the 1 day ban... Am I forever screwed when it comes to following/unfollowing now? Can I only safely do 20 follows a day now before I get banned? Should I let it go for a week and try following slowly again?

    I'm at 1600 followers with no music posted and am just trying to get the follower count up before I eventually post stuff.

    This sucks!

    Email them and apologize. Maybe you'll get your account back. If not all you can do is start over

    I haven't lost my account. I'm saying I hit the one day 24 hour temp ban.. It's now unbanned... But I want to start following / unfollowing again like before and if I start following will I hit the ban again after only following 25 people like before? That's my question.

    So your question was how to get banned on BHW? Because that's how you get banned on BHW.

    If it happens it happens. You have 4,300 posts since last year on here, you're a loser. Do you ever post anything helpful or are you just a freeloading mooch who attacks others for no reason?

    take it easy, 200 follows a day is probably too many if you are doing it day in day out.

    Also, do not follow up to 2000 then unfollow. Obvious botting behaviour.

    Keep your max follows down.

    Now you have a block, TAKE IT EASY. your next ban will come easy.

    TRy to do more with less.

    Who are you following? random users or highly targeted? don't follow users who haven't been on soundcloud in the last 7 days, better yet, follow those who have been on in the last couple of days.

    Are you following users interested in your styles? Are they artists themselves of listener accounts. Are they likely to be paying attention to every new follower they get and check out who it is? Or do they already have 10k followers and couldn't care less about a new follower.

    Are you maximising your follows, by playing a random track from the user before following, by downloading a track if is downloadable, by liking the track as well. Make every action count. That way you gain more new fans by following less and not getting your account blocked


    Try searching and liking tracks, reposting tracks, adding tracks to playlists, commenting on tracks, sending messages. Go easy on the following.

    Getting banned is part of life when dealing with social networks, just try more IPs, more accounts and less followers

    Alright, so since this is somewhere I have been relatively successful considering the time I've put in... I will give you some advice.

    1. Don't use your artist account as the one following or anything else. Use it for the music. Personally I hate when I see people following over a few hundred people. Makes them look spammy IMO. If you have songs, upload one or two.

    2. Make 5-10 accounts where your account profile/name/info are an attractive but not obviously fake looking female.

    3. Repost song across all accounts.

    4. Don't follow and unfollow that many people a day. Very sketchy. I managed to get 15k+ followers in a few months time with only following 500 artists/djs (not just regular listeners).

    5. What you need to do is search tracks by whatever genre of music you are planning on making in the future and "LIKE" them. However, when you type in "Electronic" or whatever, you need to click on the search parameters on the left and search "TRACKS" and "IN THE PAST HOUR". Depending on how active your genre is, you may want to move it back to "IN THE PAST DAY." Regardless, you only do about 200-250 or so LIKES a day per account. I did this on my regular computer with no proxies or anything. Sometimes I did 400 or so and left the other accounts empty that day. If you do a crazy amount, leave it be for a few days to cool it down.

    It's reality that the ratio of likes:followers you get is proportionate to the picture (as sad as it is). I tested this method on about ~10 accounts or so and have not been banned on any of them. The highest I have is about 16.5k followers while some of the smaller ones all have about 2-3k. When you first start out the like:follower ratio is ~8:1 or so. You'll be surprised how quickly that will drop down to 4:1 or even 3:1 within a month. I don't know if there is a market for selling these things at all because I was creating a network of random people so that when I released songs on my artist page, I could just repost them on this "network."

    Stats:
    15.6k followers - 53k likes
    2.6k followers - 11k likes

    They are real people, and once they see a notification from an attractive female...they will come running to your page, where they see your music. These listeners then follow the artist page, without you looking even the slightest bit fake.

    I upload a song every week now and get at least 3-5k plays with a solid amount of reposts which gradually sees my follower number going up. The fake accounts just blend in now.

    Any questions, just ask.

    anytime. hope it works for ya! Curious to see the damage it could do with proxies and it being automated! Surely would be crazy, but I am not familiar with all that stuff just yet.
