How are search results ordered when querying by genre?

Basically just the title. 

 

When I query using the API with "q=genre:pop" the order of songs returned seems random.

Hey @12164400754, thanks for reaching out!

Search results in Spotify are based on a mix of current and all-time popularity—but vary from user to user based on personal listening preferences. You can read more about this here: https://artists.spotify.com/faq/promotion#how-can-i-improve-my-position-in-searches.

 

Have a great day,
