Can you( Last.fm Software engineering side) delete the related artist section and let last.fm algorithm re-populate. I believe someone created this profile as part of a bad internet marketing campaign while creating other profiles at the same time which caused Last.fm to see the artist as related. This is causing major branding issues as well. Which they are not! 


This is creating major issues on other platforms as they pull the related artist data from Last.fm

Please see https://getsatisfaction.com/lastfm/topics/artists-and-labels-how-to-make-the-most-of-last-fm for some info on how to use Last.fm as an artist.

I see that there are very few who have scrobbled (listened) to your music so there isn't much data for Last.fm to work with. It will be better as more people listen to your music. The profile do seem to be created during a marketing campaign, but that should not affect similar artists.

Can you delete the entire profile? Obviously, since there are not a lot of sqobbles it will not impact too much.

I believe If someone created profiles in the same period ( meaning mine and the ones in the related artist section) and then additionally listened to the artist in those artists. The algorithm would think there was a relationship with the artist regardless of the number of squabbles.

No.

Then your belief is wrong.
