Why is there no streams data available?
At the time of writing this article, we have almost 90 million Spotify tracks in our database, with thousands of new ones being added every day.
Just like we cannot monitor all existing Spotify playlists, we cannot record the stream count for every single track. So we took some decisions to make sure we process at least all the tracks you need.
It means that we start by recording the data for the following tracks:
- Tracks for which the page on Spot On Track has been visited in the last 14 days
- Tracks you follow
- Tracks from artists that have been visited in the last 14 days
- Tracks from artists you follow
And then we continue by the most recent tracks added in our database.
As you understood, if there is no stream data for a track, just by the fact you opened the page means there should be data available starting the next day.
Also in some cases, we will stop monitoring a track. This happens for tracks that have less than 1,000 streams as Spotify does not provide the data below this threshold. If the track has been released months ago and is still below 1,000 streams, we will monitor it every once in a while but not every day.
You are outside of those scenarios and still no stream data available? Please report the issue by clicking on the 'Report a data issue' button on the track page and we will have a look.
