Hillbilly-Music.com Web Site Reaches 2,000,000 Page Views
Fans Vote for Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006 Announced
Modesto, CA — Hillbilly-Music.com announced today, in the midst
of what has been traditionally known as Country Music Month, that
the web site reached a new milestone during the summer — 2,000,000 page views.
This milestone was reached in less than a year after we announced 1,000,000
page views. We salute the fans who continue to visit the site time and again,
young and old, coast to coast and around the world.
This new milestone was achieved without any search engine advertising. The first million,
we tried the ad word concept - but for the smallest amount possible - and while the site
probably never ranked high - it still got the click throughs. The site is cited
in auctions on eBay, linked to around the world, referenced in books and
magazine articles by authors and journalists.
The Hillbilly-Music.com web site has no demographics - we think the music crosses
all generations and is there for all to enjoy - the people, their music and the history.
Its our slogan, but in one sense its our focus as well.
We salute the disc jockeys on the air and on the web who mention our site, who find
our site and let us know of their shows. We will continue to let fans know about those
disc jockeys and shows who are playing the classical country music.
And last, but not least, we salute those who made the history that we try and document
on the web site. Many of the writeups the fans see on the web site are based on
interviews and correspondence with the artists themselves. We also thank the families
of the artists who graciously provide us with material and information about their
relatives. We like to think of the web site as a friendly general store or your
own family kitchen. You just never know who is going to stop by for a spell and tell
you their part in the history of what we affectionately and respectfully call,
This year fans cast their votes again for who they thought deserved a spot
in the Country Music Hall of Fame. We salute those who took the time to vote. We would
like to point out that if fans cast more than one vote for an artist - we did not count
it as we counted only the unique votes by IP address. But we salute those loyal fans
at the same time who would take the time to vote more than once.
