if i use soundcloud manager to boost plays will that affect how much i make monthly, right now i am bringing in 400 usd monthly from soundcloud premier, i do not want these plays to affect how soundcloud ranks my songs, will this affect how much i get paid? in another words will using soundcloud manager derank my songs from the charts?

<standard disclaimer>

Boosting plays in order to get paid is fraud and is illegal. Even if your intention is not to defraud, just increase exposure it doesn't matter - it is fraud.

Fake plays for pay is fraud and the law is clear: it is illegal. As an application developer, I am liable for facilitating fraud by building a program with the intention to defraud.

Automating a website to boost your stats is not illegal, one can make up their own mind to use automation programs for legal purposes, we do not condone nor will tolerate illegal behaviour.


Regards,
Martin

i understand all this, but what i am asking is this..... ever since i have been using soundcloud manager the algorithm puts my songs with other people who are using soundcloud manager and it makes my songs look less reputable, also i have been getting paid less ever since i started using this... therefore my question is...... does this effect pay in anyway? does soundcloud know when we are using this and pay us less for boosting stats?

As above, the license states you must not use the program if you are monetizing your tracks. This is fraud and illegal. We do not condone nor allow the program to be used in this way.
