How to identify spot fake streams and playlists

1. The growth of a playlist If you see spikes and drops with a higher number of followers, this should indicate something is wrong with the list.

2. Spikes and drops in the streams
3. Not triggering the Discovered Weekly playlist or any other algorithmic Spotify playlist.
4. Stay away from free submission portals where these kinds of lists are posted; in return, you need to follow the playlist.
5. Avoid guaranteed playlist placement packages advertised on Instagram or through email marketing; in the worst-case scenario, your track will be removed.
6. Just random tracks in the list, some have 1 major artist on top and the rest all indie music, as they know they can fill the list with it.
