Modesto, CA - January 4, 2009 - Hillbilly-Music.com is celebrating the
achievement of a new milestone in its web site traffic - the attainment
of over 7,000,000 web page views. It seems like only a few months ago
the site had reached its previous milestone of 5,000,000 page views.
Hillbilly-Music.com attributes this sustained growth to the constant
delivery of new content and information about the various artists,
groups, programs, disc jockeys and books that keeps the fans coming
back time and again.
Fan mail attests to the fact that fans enjoy rekindling their memories
of their favorite artists and programs. Time and again we receive comments
to the effect that they've spent many an hour clicking around the site
and enjoying the musical history.
Further, in an attempt to provide fans with the ability to acquire the music
that they've discovered or are wanting to rediscover again, the site
became the first official affliate with the legendary Ernest Tubb Record Shop in
headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee. This affiliation is similar to the
Amazon associates program where through clicks from our site that result
in a purchase provide a small commission to help offset our expenses.
We were pleased to include this affiliation as we realize that no one site
could carry all of the older, traditional country music that fans read about
on this site and hear samples of. The only choice then is to strive to become
a hub where fans can discover other sources to find the music.
Hillbilly-Music.com continues to make contacts and provide assistance to various
journalists and authors, including reference material, answers to inquiries,
enabling contacts, search for information from our exclusive index
of publications, song folios, sheet music, newsletters. This search index
is used in our research and enables us to readily find information by a simple
search and click on page numbers to read the documents. To date, over
4,800 pages have been scanned, saving wear and tear of the older, more
fragile publications. To date, over 1,350 publications have been indexed.
We continue to index our collection; it is by no means a completed project,
but an ongoing effort that pays off in reduced efforts in research and
