My apologies for the essay…
So I decided to check out the latest tracks in the Pop category. By default the browser is set to “Newest Items”, and I selected “Added in the last week”. It says 123 items uploaded in this category this week, and my latest track, Acoustic Summer Beat, uploaded on the 24th July, is at the bottom of page 2.
I decided to see where it was on the ‘trending spectrum’, so I set “sort by” to “trending”. Still 123 tracks, so I’m assuming it is all the same 123 newest tracks from the last week, rearranged in trending order. However, my track is not on this list anywhere. Furthermore, at least three tracks that I’ve noticed so far, Summer by alversmusicproduction, Pop Dance Deep by NewZhilla and Summer Indie Pop by Alex_MakeMusic, all appear twice on different pages.
So my track is getting 0 exposure, and these tracks are getting double.
I decided to explore deeper, and looked at my other most recent items. Interestingly, the items that have sold at least 1 copy do appear on the trending list, but my track A Happy & Positive Acoustic in the Folk, Acoustic category with 0 sales also is invisible, while other tracks appear twice.
Can anyone explain that?
