I got good sales during the testing period. Even 2 Broadcast Licenses for 2 of my oldest(!) tracks which seemed to be 4 years old, not selling for 3 years btw. This tells me that my items are still great and definetely worth to check out, but since the search engine is based on best sellers and new items, these “hidden gems” won’t get the exposure they deserve.
The focus on new items and its short but good exposure has resulted in a race among Authors. I’m sure if the focus would be not only on best sellers and new stuff Authors would go for quality instead of quantity.
