I submitted a new track, and as some other platforms now prohibit stupid titles made only of keywords (because their customers are fed up with these), I decided to do the same here, but I used a compound title, something like “My nice title (Vlog Hiphop)”
Well, they kept all the words but removed the round brackets… so I read the rules, and ok, compound titles are forbidden.
Why not, I like the idea, but has the search engine be modified so that it does not entirely rely on titles?
I doubt it, because I checked one of the best seller in Hiphop, and my god… the titles he uses are so ridiculous and unprofessional “Hiphoping hiphop” “This Hiphop” “It is Hiphop”… and several tracks have the exact same title by the way…
The rules say that these titles are forbidden, but it seems it does not apply to these guys…It is so sad to see this…
I decided to go the “Creative” route, I have seen some good sellers which seem to use these kind of titles, so hopefully the search engine is better?
I think the prohibition is about for “hip hop is hip hop” and all these stupid names.
so “Hip-hopping for Hiphop” would not be considered a stupid name… oh well
We will see on October 2th how stupid it is…
Am I missing something? What’s so special about October 2th?
We should be able to call our tracks originally and use tags for search purposes. I don’t see why “Original Title [Tag Tag Tag]” is a bad thing. It has the best of both worlds. Original and descriptive.
yes, I totally agree… and as a listener, on some other sites, I love when tracks have a nice, artistic name, but when I can also see a quick description of the genre/mood, on the same line.
But it is clearly stated that this is not allowed! Funny thing is, they were ok to remove the brackets… but then it looked like a really really stupid name!
I’ll choose the same route as you: artistic names, for now at least!
All those names must be changed by authors that day.
Ok, so I don’t know why some of you pretended something special would happened on 2nd oct…?
But I checked some of the profiles I usually check in hiphop styles… because they sell, they sell…
and… nothing has changed…
Look at this screenshot…!
And these are very recent uploads… and they sell not too bad!!
