Why are all my followers on Soundcloud probably bots?

    Whenever I post a track, someone follows me, and they usually have nothing posted except some weird "Submit your track - link in description" thing. Is this just something automatic, and is there a way to get it so that those who follow me aren't, for lack of a better word, bots?

    Yes, this happens to me every time I upload a track. Maybe having a Premium Soundcloud account stops this type of spamming? I simply remove them from my followers list immediately.

    I get those “submit your track” followers all the time too. But I’m pretty sure mine are all legitimate and extremely gorgeous women like their profile photos prove.

    Well, if i buy soundcloud (or any social media) followers and all of their bots just click my profile to follow me then the system (soundcloud etc) will know its bots. Or it will be too easy to tell its not real followers.
    therefore, those fake accounts just clicks a huge number or random profiles (like yours), ads, etc, follow all types of poeple etc so they look like real accounts. some or obvious. others have known how to hide it better.

    for example:
    10k followers all from the same account and someone else orders the serve with the same 10k will look dubious and also get soundclous to take down the accoutns.

    I like those who like and follow after 5 seconds of posting a new track. Hilarious.

    You could definitely be right. I usually keep them to pad my own ego (unless there desperate as you'll find)
