apologies for asking the same question you probably have answered multiple times.
Regarding 2023-03-31 and 2023-04-01, we are actively working on properly re-importing this data.
I currently have no answers about point 1 and 2 as we will have to follow up on this from our end. Concrete examples will help our case.
To shed some light on the
monetizable or also known as
accountable trait of a stream. That basically just signifies if a play is shorter than 30 seconds. We provide visibility about this via the Skip rate indicator.
Meaning if you have a track with 1 stream and a skip rate of 50% you have 1 stream which is not being accounted for.
We decided to graph the streams that have the opportunity to be monetized (regardless of any additional logic) and use the skip rate to highlight the difference.
I understand that we could also graph all streams edit: (incl. partial streams) and highlight the skip rate in which case you would have to subtract from the plotted numbers.
Neither is right or wrong. Perhaps having some more clarity and information on the skip rate would make this more understandable.
Happy to investigate some of the mismatches you observed and figure stuff out. It’s helpful to get insights into what Spotify reports on spotify for artists, I do agree that we should end up with the same numbers and we will do everything possible from our side to get there. Ultimately we do have to rely on the data that is provided to us.
Thank you for your patience and help!
