    Less than you currently are :)

    But really it depends. There isn't a hard and fast rule.

    How many were you unfollowing?

    250 follows seems a bit low to be getting banned. Were they spread out or blasted in 5 minutes?

    I guess your account is flagged so you get temp bans more often now. As have definitely followed more than that with a fresh account.

    I would recommend doing a little and often. So if you were following 250 a week, break it down to 30 something a day. Or follow less, but more targeted users.

    If you are just blanket following, many of the users will not be active, not really into your music style etc. Try to filter out with current users, users into your style, perhaps aim for producers / djs / bands (if they have tracks uploaded) as they tend to be more involved with the site, paying more attention to their followers. Does a user care if they have followers if they don't have tracks uploaded? I would say no. Whereas an up and coming producer, is aware of every single new follower they have

    Maybe cool it on the followings for a while.

    Try favouriting tracks / listening to tracks / commenting on tracks (careful them as you can get temp bans easily for over doing this.

    Although for getting users to follow you back, follow+unfollow is the best. The above methods work as well. But definitely less is more. The search filter for date track added last hour, last day, last week is good for this. These users are active.

    200. The answer is 200.

    That is, you can perform 200 follow actions in 24 days. Be it follow or unfollow. If you exceed this, you will be flagged. They may not temp-ban you the first time you exceed it, but they will. First time temp-ban is for 1 day. 2nd time is for 3 days. 3rd time is 1 week. (can you tell I have tested these limits a lot)?

    To be safe, do not unfollow or follow more than 190 per day. That will give you some headroom and wont press you up against the maximum.

    If your account has been flagged , The 200 will get you back blocked! I did alot of testing this year and i really love all of the feedback :D If more people could give their opinion it would be helpful......

    I have about 800 accounts that are used for selling the soundcloud services on dominatingthecloud.com

    Many of the accounts have been flagged at one point or another, but I still go 190 follows or unfollows per day without issue. Perhaps there are different levels of "flagging" depending on what level of abuse they flagged you for. I actually read yesterday that the limit is 250 for paid accounts. So perhaps that is another factor.. whether or not you are paid.

    For the record none of my 800 accounts are paid with the exception of a few.

    I assume you are trying to unfollow only those that are not following back right ?
