Do you want to find out which music is the most popular? The sound mash plugin lets you host an interactive rating game area of your website. Using this area of the website your visitors can
- Vote which music is their favourite from A vs B (randomly picked)
- Comment on the music which is then attached to that music
- Display a ‘top 10’ tunes. These are ranked using the Facemash ‘Elo Algorithm’
- Elo Algorithm is a great way to rank content. If 10th beats the current 1st place it gets more points than if 10th beats the current 9th place.
Through using this plugin you’ll benefit from
- Finding out from your visitors which music they like the best
- Be able to then post more of the same types of content
- Get loads more page views as people vote, and vote, and vote.
- Give a up to date ‘top 10’ of the best music on your site
- Increase user engagement and time spent on your site
The Sound Mash Plugin
To add new music you just create a new Sound Mash post and add your link to the soundcloud page. The music is then automatically added to the rating game 🙂 It shows great stats for each soundcloud song
- Rating – 1,400 for new songs – ranking up based on which other track they beat (uses Elo Algorithm)
- Wins: how many times it’s beaten another track
- Losses: how many times another track has beaten it
Click vote then loads in the next two songs / tracks (and registers another page view to your website). This is a great way to boost engagement and page views.
Top rated music
With a simple shortcode on a page of your choice you can display the top sounds from the results of your sound mash. This page is a great page to see which music tops the list.
Each song has a Facebook Comment embed and it’s own URL for sharing. This gives you more website traffic to your site from the Social Aspects of the plugin. More visitors = more votes which means a more accurate view of which music is the best.
Monetise your website
You can even place adverts on some of the pages from the plugin which will increase your CPM rates and earn you more passive income from your site.
