How can new fans find your music? Well, one of the best ways is to tag your music. Tagging makes you discoverable when a listener is searching SoundCloud. The better your tags, the easier you are to find. The best way to tag is to be honest. If you made a drum & bass track, then set the main genre to Drum & Bass. Add moods and a location to your tags as well. It all helps. Stick to one main genre to keep things clear. Adding a bunch of genres won’t make your track any more findable. The more concise and accurate your tags are, the more easily your music will get discovered by the listeners that wanna hear it most.
