Thank you so much everyone who's got themselves up and running on Last.fm as well as letting us know you're there by friending each other, it's been such a great response :D
Our next task is - Tags
Because Last.fm do an annual roundup of the Top 1000 most popular artists by tag, it’s really helpful to increase awareness by tagging your tracks.
Lets aim to get Kris on some year-end tag lists for 2011. He did make the Top 10 tagged acoustic list and it's really important for users to tag his tracks, and not just with “UNF” and “#wiggly” but with things like "male vocalist", "rock", "acoustic". Fun tags have their place, people get curious about “#wiggly” & click… But to get him noticed by the tag aggregators at Last.fm, we need some standard ones too.
We have a minimum of some agreed tags so that we tag EVERY song the same and with the appropriate tag. This makes sure we maximize Kris’s chances of being on the roundup list.
You can either tag the individual song, the album, or the artist or all of these.
Click on the “tag” button on the header. For each song, please tag it with two or more of these tags, whichever is appropriate…
You don't need to include all of these for every song - but for every song, please add at least two of these in addition to any others you might like to add.
This is the scrobbler screen:
Click on “Tag” (third from the left on the header):
Add your tags!
ETA: Thanks to those that pointed it out "Male Vocalists" (plural) has a lot more uses than "Male Vocalist" so I've updated the suggested tag to reflect that. Thanks again :-)
I like questions :-)
Each individual song that you tag is tagged for good. But if you have multiple versions of the song, then you need to tag each version.
I hope that answers what you need :-)
Brilliant! Thanks for letting us know :-)
Not being a LastPandora user, these sort of tips are really helpful :D
