Strange goings on in my long tail

March 6, 2016

Since I got a SoundCloud Pro Account I’ve spend more time looking at my stats and fiddling with my profile then actually making any music.

Numbers are addictive. They change: a little bit here, a little bit there. You want to know when they go up. You panic if they don’t move. But when the numbers are so small, they probably don’t tell you anything.

So why should a two year old track which only had 6 plays suddenly pick up five in a week?

It’s probably just a bot. But a bot coming from Italy, according to the stats.

A puzzle. Never to be solved.

Numbers and pictures dominate. Words come a poor third.
