User profile and public playlists not showing up at all

Status: Not An Issue

Hey there,

 

I'm making a new brand that also is going to focus heavy in making Spotify playlists. Even after sending the playlist to a couple friends who followed the link, no one can find it by just searching for the user profile publicy or for the playlist. Please help!

Hey @is_thunder117!

 

We can assure you that the information @MattSuda provided is correct. It could take a few days for new profiles to show up as a search result after creating them. However, playlist results depend on popularity and the follower count.

 

Once your playlists are more popular, they'll start showing there.

 

If anything else comes up, don't hesitate to open a new thread.

 

All the best.

When I search for your username it shows up in the "profile" section of search.

 

Spotify has an algorithm that determines what is shown in search. Once your playlists get more followers they will probably show up in the search. For now the best way to share your playlsits is to share the direct link.

Sadly, I'm pretty sure this feature no longer exists. I have tried several times to view or search friends' profiles and it does not work.
