My playlist is not coming up when searched by name

Regular

I created a new playlist in our profile and when I search for it by the exact title it doesn't show up.  I also tried searching for it with the first word only and it still does not come up.  The playlist is called HardDrive Underground under our profile for HardDrive Radio.

Hey there @HardDriveRadio!

 

Thanks for bringing this up with us.

 

Search results in Spotify are based on a mix of factors including popularity and date of creation, so it takes newer playlists a bit longer to show up in searches.

 

The results also vary from user to user based on personal listening preferences. For example I was able to find your list by searching for it by name.

 

Usually the more streams and follows one playlists has, the bigger changes it has of showing up in search, but that's not all that's taken into consideration.

 

The algorithm could also consider the musical taste of a user when showing the search results.

 

We hope this info helps. Let us know if you have any other questions 🙂

I have a playlist called undeservedly underrated and am having the same issue. Could it be because Ive only had the playlist since 14th April?
