I made a last.fm account just to get recommendations. I've been scrobbling stuff for a few hours now and I still haven't received any. It just says "Your feed is empty, please try again later.". How long does it typically take?

Unfortunately there are no other ways of adding artists, albums and tracks to your Last.fm library than scrobbling at the moment. On the old site you could import your local media player library with a new account, add similar artists quickly on a special search page or add artists manually on their profiles. All of this counted for improving your recommendations quickly, but these features have to be rebuilt first for the new site.

Other external methods are the Universal Scrobbler which enables bulk scrobbling in the new version and the Last.fm Mass Tagger, as tagging an artist, album or track also adds it to your library. That Java tool can also love many tracks at once, another way of adding them.

I haven't received any recommendations at all yet. I'm just trying to get recommendations for what I've already scrobbled

What's your username, and how many scrobbles do you have at the moment? If you only joined a few hours ago, it will probably take at least 24 hours.

Hi,

Normally you would get recommendations pretty much as soon as you start scrobbling, but there's currently a delay after some problems on the weekend. So you should see your recommendations in the next 24 hours indeed :)
