SoundCloud is a popular community for musicians and music lovers alike. Users can upload their own music creations and listen to the music of others. It is widely used and attracts a lot of traffic daily. One of its many benefits is an option for sharing a song from SoundCloud onto social media sites and blogs.
Here is how you can embed a song from SoundCloud onto your blog:
First, you need to upload your song on SoundCloud, or if you want to share someone else’s music, you can do that as well. There are really plenty of songs to choose from, and some of them are public domain. Go to the song, and click on “Share.” You will now see options to share it on various social media sites like Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter and more. As you see, at the bottom there is an option to use an embed code and insert a song directly into the HTML code of our blog.
However, that is not all. Click on the edit widget, and there you will see what the embedded player will look like. You can choose your own special colors or enable comments as well.
Grooveshark is another very popular music-related website. You can find almost any artist or song here and listen for free. Additionally, you can upload your own songs as well if you can’t find what you are looking for on the site.
When you find a song you want to share, click “Share – Embed” as you see in the picture. You will be given an HTML code which you will be able to insert directly into the HTML section of your website.
Choose from different templates and adjust the widget size as well. Before you copy the code, you can preview the player and see how it will look on your blog.
DivShare is a sharing and storage site where you can keep files for free. It is similar to sites like Mediafire and Hulkshare in its uses. However, one of the great advantages that it has is that DivShare enables you to share music in a variety of ways. You can provide links to a file for people who want to just listen to it streaming instead of downloading it. And you can also embed music files on your blog and site for people to play the songs on. One of the best things about DivShare is that it offers you a variety of different designs and looks to choose from when picking what the embedded player on your site will look like.
All you have to do is create a DivShare account, upload the file, find the track on your dashboard, click on it, and then click “Embed,” after which you will be taken to a page that allows you to pick the look of your player and then displays the embed code on the right.
