Other people can't find my public playlists

I love making playlists and don't want to keep them to myself. That's why I've made my playlists public to other users. However, when I searched for my playlists on a friend's account I couldn't find them. I want people to find my playlists directly through the search and not just via my account.

I'm using Spotify 0.8.5.133 (Unlimited) on Mac OS X 10.5.8.

Hey! :) 

 

Playlist searching is always a bit of a pain, since there are so many playlists in the Spotify system! 

Can you post a link to a playlist you are having issues with? (Right click on the playlist name, select Copy Spotify URI and paste here!)

Hi Peter,

 

Here's a playlist of mine:

The Sophisticated Sound of Exotica

 

I've tried searching with another account, using the exact words, but nothing came up.

Strange I can't find it either, as I said before #tempermental!

There must be an explanation.

Just a comment, how would your friend know to look for that playlist by name?

That's beside the point. I want my playlists to be searchable, for friends and others too. I was wondering why my playlists don't show up in search results. Other people's lists do, so why is that?

I'm thinking spotify might only re-index playlists for search once in a while, since there are literally billions of them to go through. 

Are these relatively new playlists?

No, some of them are almost 3 years old.
