    So here is a challenge or sort of a question for the more experienced SEO gurus.

    Basically I have a friend who is an instrumentalist, he wants to rank his main site on the first page of Google within his niche, but the keywords are highly competitive. I figured since SoundCloud is a High PR site, he should make an account, upload some of his instrumentals, link them to his main site and focus on ranking the SoundCloud page instead.
    Example: when you search "Buy Rap Beats" for instance, as of now, the second link is some SoundCloud page with the extended URL

    Do you guys think this method would work, and if so what kind of methods for backlinking should I use?
    I figured a couple blasts would be ok, even if they were low quality since SoundCloud is such a high PR site.
    Thoughts?

    All sounds fine except of the low quality links blasts. Few links that have juice in them might be enough and they will have a better chance to be stable.

    usually I would agree if this was a new site, but I still feel like since SC has such a high PR it would not matter and would help get on Google's radar quicker

    It should rank no problem.

    Also forget what others say about "low quality links" or any of that guff!

    SoundCloud is a high PR authority site, create a page with the keyword in it, blast it with some fiver gigs and give it a few weeks. Sorted.

    Yeah, it might also help if you juice a mixcloud page with it as well, keywords, and decent quality backlinks from music sites. A nice cobweb of music links, linking back to the authority site.

    The only problem would be if that other guy who has a soundcloud page ranked has some nice natural internal juice from within soundcloud. If that's the case you'll have a tough time throwing links at it.

    I'd hop on multiple parasites, and definitely tell your homeboy to open his shit up in Ableton, drag an image on each track and upload to youtube to try that as well.

    Honestly though, if your friend wants to get some royalties online SEO probably isn't a good place to go. There isn't actually a lot of traffic on the buying keywords, but even more importantly there are A LOT of beats available on that search page. If he were a broker that'd be one thing, but for a producer 1,900 searches/month on "buy rap beats" ain't shit.

    If I was him (I do a little producing myself) and wanted to game the internet, I'd do shit like use soundcloud bots to follow various rappers. That'll get his shit heard by his target market and it provides an effortless way to take action in a comment or a private message. Same shit goes for youtube, facebook, anything. Make pages to showcase the beats and just build a following of artists. Listen and comment on shit too with honest feedback, shit goes a long way.

    Lastly, a lot of the sites that do rank for those terms are worth it to the owners because they're brokers. Have him get his shit on there and he'll get all the traffic you're trying to get with SEO anyway.

    you can still use scrapebox on high authority sites and get good results.

    Even if SoundCloud is a high PR site, you shouldn't neglect the quality links. It can still help. If you are going to do something, do it right anyway.

    I second that. Organic growth is the way to go, even if it is accelerated by the use of a bot. Interact, like, comment, share.
