You can "disassemble" your url like example . com (without having a look at your source code, it's hard to see what's going on there)

When did you create that soundcloud page?  It's not indexed at the moment. Could be because it's new.  Or it could be that Google decided not to index in it. Soundcloud has over 12 million pages indexed;  Google might not index all of them.

Could be that it just needs time.  It's a 12 million page site, so it may take time for the bots to note a new page and index it (if Google decides to index it).  There's not much else you can do since you don't own the site.

Hey Brent,

Sometimes it may happen that we don't discover URLs as fast as we'd like, especially if there are no links to the new URLs from a prominent place like the homepage, and there is no Sitemap which would give us a hint about what to crawl. In this particular case we saw the URL the first time only about 3 days ago.

We try to crawl and potentially index every URL we discover so you just have to give it some more time: provided we don't encounter crawl errors, indexing directives that would prevent us from indexing (like noindex meta) and the content is of high quality, it's likely we'll index it.
Until then you could write about your content on your blog or a social network. People like quality content, letting them know about what are you creating, giving them insights about what motivated you when you created something, and giving them hints about where to listen to the pieces you mixed could be a good start. Just make sure you don't spam your followers :)

You can try submitting the page to Google:  https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/submit-url?pli=1  Not sure if that accepts pages or just domains.

I like how you put that, Gary.  I was trying to figure out a way to tell the OP to link to it but didn't want it to sound like "build backlinks." :-D

I am having the same issue, but this http://soundcloud.com/justin-jay/ page has been up for over 1 year. Google is crawling all the sub pages for this profile, but not the main page. I checked the source code and there are no meta tags blocking any spiders. Can someone please help me make sense of why Google is not indexing http://soundcloud.com/justin-jay/??
