    Hi guys. I bought 10 private proxies that are mean't for general browsing, I am trying to use them with SOUNDCLOUD DOMINATOR . So far it seems pretty slow,

    But is trying to use 10 private proxies with the request of 50 threads 10 second delay time and 200 000 plays too demanding? What do you suggest?

    how does it perform when you run just 5 threads on the same time delay and plays?

    I just moved it back to 1 thread,

    I think 1 thread with the 10 second delay with the 10 private proxies will do best, When at 50 it's prob. pumping out too many for SOUNDCLOUD count at once :)

    200,000 views from 10 proxies is essentially 20,000 views per ip.

    Nothing suspicious about that..

    Alright so what do you think I should adjust to then ? Meaning the

    Delaytime
    thread amount
    total play amount

    that's for one run through before restarting again ? :)

    and this is for SOUNDCLOUD not Youtube , I don't think SOUNDCLOUD is power hungry as YOUTUBE is.

    They may not be as power hungry as youtube, but I think even a first day intern would be able to spot that.

    Diversify, perhaps mix in some public proxies with that too. Test how public proxy affect the play count on a test song. Test if repeat plays through one proxy works as expected on a test song. Test everything on a small scale first and then scale up what works, it's no good putting all your eggs in one basket and going straight for gold.

    Be analytical.

    Edit: I said view but I meant play (they are essentially the same concept)

    Better use daily scraped thousands of public proxies than few private ones. Giving thousands of plays from the same 10 proxies will increase red flag for sure risking the tracks.

    Alright this is what I just did.

    Mixed

    10 Private Proxies,

    1000 Free Proxies that load up with the Bot

    1000 Free Proxies that load up with Proxy Tool Box.

    total 2010

    Now I set my bot at

    2500 Plays
    2 Threads
    Delay Time 0 -5 Seconds.

    This should be more realistic no ?

    Soundcloud didn't USED to care about botting at all. 10k plays through 10 proxies no problem at all. But 200k through 10? Buddy, you have to think a little when botting.

    I don't know about clouddominator, but I know my bots would not stop you doing stupid things. As by stopping you doing stopping things, we may also be stopping you from doing clever things that we never thought of, so we have to assume some thought has gone into instructing actions and setting settings values.


    Also 50 threads through 10 proxies, is 5 connections, can your proxies take 5 simultaneous connections from your single IP? Sometimes they are locked

    I have heard of soundcloud banning accounts for blatent boosting.

    Ask yourself, WHY do you need 200k plays. WHAT do you hope to achieve. WHAT may you lose.

    Boosting plays, is mainly done to give the impression of popularity of your track. But that just means 1-2k plays. To give a conscious or subconscious indicator. Also, a track that gets 200k plays in a day, then nothing? Screams fake.

    Setup a repeat action, to scrape proxies then boost your plays by 500 every 24 hours (or so)

    But a track with 200k plays and no comments, no likes, no reposts? Again screams fake. So make sure to take into account the full picture and don't focus PURELY on stats numbers.

    Remember WHY you are doing this, to promote the page / artist / music. NOT to just see really big numbers. No one cares if you have 2k plays or 200k.
    Yes boosting has it's part to play in a soundcloud promotional campaign, but it is just a small part. You should focus on getting REAL users to your page, REAL listeners, REAL likes, REAL engagment.

    This is achieved by interacting / engaging with OTHER users. Use the program to search and follow users, search and like, search and comment, search and message. Do this on repeat every few hours. There are soundcloud limits to all these, do DO MORE WITH LESS. Don't just follow 1k followers of some popular artist, many of these are no longer active users and waste your limits. Many are just listener accounts who follow major artists, they are NOT going to check out up and coming / unknown artists. You want to focus on active users, those who care about who has followed them, who has liked their tracks, those users who spend hours searching for new tracks to find new music first, those passionate about music. These tend to me other artists.

    So filter your searches. Make sure to action on only users who are currently online, or who have been online in the last 24 hours / last week. Focus on those who upload content etc etc.

    Use the soundcloud filter searches for tracks uploaded in the last hour / 24 hours / week.

    Make use of v2 messaging where you can attach / share multiple tracks. Messaging is limited so use it wisely, HIGHLY TARGET your lists as you should be getting 100% return messages. 10 messages a day on repeat, that is 70 new REAL fans. That is worth more than 200k plays.

    Other techniques involve running a soundcloud army of fake accounts. Have them like / follow / repost to gain followers. Then have them repost your tracks every few days, have them make playlists including your tracks. Again, set this up on repeat actions. Running every 48 hours, 72 hours whatever. By reposting / creating playlists your tracks are then syndicated to all fake account followers.

    The above works, I guarantee it. Simply setup daily stats scraping actions, so you can view how your followers increase, how the listens and likes and reposts on your tracks goes up via REAL users.

    As I say, I don't know how to do the above in clouddominator, but it is all pretty basic soundcloud promotional techniques.

    There's a particular section dedicated for Proxies in the BHW Marketplace.

    You could find a ton of sellers which are selling different types of proxy lists.
