Last week, I posted the list of Top 30 Beach Music Artists based on website clicks from Beach Music Online. I received mixed comments and many felt the list was not a good and accurate picture of the talent we have in Beach Music.While I did get some negative feedback, but I received a lot of positive feedback as well. The post received over 800 facebook likes, so it appears it was appreciated by a good number of fans. I thought about not doing the list this week, but I had so many share the page on facebook.. The social activity on both this website and beachmusiconline.com reached some big numbers on the analytics. I am open to other ways of ranking them, but I am not sure how you go about ranking the beach music artists without creating some controversy. I am a web person and a stats guy as I said last week and I like to see website traffic. I did add one artist to the list that received enough traffic to debut on the Top 30 List for the week. Some moved up. some moved down. Should I do the list again? Let me know what you think.
On March 20, the ranking results were based on 4 weeks of reporting. Today, I decided to pull the list based on the last 7 days.
Beach Music Online, for the last 10 years, has been sending Internet traffic to beach music artist websites from the beach music artist and band schedule page. This list below is simply a ranking based on the activity of the thousands of beach music fans that visit this bmo website and schedule webpage.
If your favorite artist is not listed on the beach music online schedule schedule page, please use the contact form at beachmusiconline.com and tell me who is missing. ( Requirement, they must have a website schedule page and it has to be somewhat updated. If they are still featuring the calendar from 2013, they may not get approved to be added to the list ).
