If other users are searching for you on SoundCloud, make locating your profile as easy as possible for them by making your display name and profile URL clear, correct and concise. The username can also be changed via mobile URL changes not possible on mobile. Be sure to display it as you would anywhere else, and feel free to include spaces and capital letters. Changing your profile URL is not available through our mobile apps you may only change your username via the app. Your new profile URL and display name will be immediately searchable within SoundCloud, but may not show up immediately in Google search. This is dependent on Google refreshing its cache, and SoundCloud cannot influence this. If you change your profile URL, this will affect all links and embedded players you might have posted previously. Embedded players that were posted before August will be broken. However, embedded players posted after this time will still play your tracks, but if the listener clicks through to the SoundCloud page, they will be directed to an empty page.
