I'm listening for obscure country artists compilation at the moment. There are many artists that weren't on last.fm before and that means, that after each of them scrobbled for the first time, there a page should have been created for him. But it wasn't. The tracks are in my "recently listened", but they are not clickable in that list, they show up just as a plain text.

Now the problem affects even those artists that are in last.fm database.
Just scrobbled "I'll Take You For A Ride — Al Ferrier" and neither Artist nor Track are clickable.
Al Ferrier's page definitely exists in last.fm database:

I just scrobbled a song by Edward Elgar, so not exactly an unknown new artist, and the track name is not clickable. It shows thousands of listeners on Spotify, it probably should be in the database.

Having the same problem for this artist: http://www.last.fm/music/Atom%E2%84%A2+&+Tobias. 

Even though a page exists already, it's not showing my scrobbles on there. The artist or song is also not clickable on my page.

Can we get an official response please?

For artists/songs that are not clickable, they end up on your top list without any artist. Which pretty much makes them useless scrobbles.

I'm having this issue too. My friends are in a metal band called Hands of a Traitor and I want to scrobble them on last.fm but it is not being recognized as a scrobble cause no one has played them on last.fm before. It would be nice to get some plays going for them.
