Hi there,

Newish member here (registered ages back but pop on to the forum as a guest mostly),

I'm trying to collage any useful links to chart data.

I'm familiar with Polyhex, and I used to use a service called everyhit.co.uk before it was abandoned.

I check the iTunes chart daily using snkhan.co.uk

I check the weekly chart using officialcharts.com/charts/

Are there any other essential resources available that people on this forum use?

Hi there! Welcome to the forum, hope to see you around more biggrin.gif

You've got most of the essentials there I think, although the Spotify top 200 chart is just as important as the iTunes chart now I'd say, so that link may be worth using!

I do know of this site

http://www.onlineweb.com/theones/2010.htm

But its been abandoned for the last 5 years.

Also this site

http://www.pharoah.co.uk/number-2s-00s.htm

But it seems that has been abandoned as well, but I do compile a similar thing on here which you can find in the archive forum, we have passed 1000 number #2s now. Which needs updating when I get some free time.

Thank you both.

As well as websites, over the years have there been things such as apps, magazines, podcasts, videos etc with UK chart info?

I'm an avid follower of the charts, especially due to being a long time collector of the original CD compilation series, Now That's What I Call Music which I have on CD from Now 18 onwards.

Is this subscription similar to the Music Week subscription?

Also just wanted to repost this question from another thread;

Thank you Mdh,

As for Kworb, I'm still unclear about the various columns and what the bold horizontal numbers mean at the top of the table?

Also, is there any site that gives the actual daily number of iTunes streams and purchases?

The cost is similar.

There's a free example edition you can check out : http://www.ukchartsplus.co.uk/UKChartsPlus463c.pdf

The horizontal bold numbers are how long ago the update was, in hours! A figure of 1.2 for example would mean the update is from 1.2 hours ago happy.gif The column of numbers furthest to the left is the most recent update.

Digital Sales Data is the closest we have to iTunes purchases but it's only an estimate, it has been proved inaccurate on here but can be handy to estimate with biggrin.gif

The cost is not actually similar - it's 145 for the full edition for 12 months (our most expensive option) while music week is 179. We carry a vast array of charts down to a Top 200 for Singles and are as accurate as possible. We also include many very good features (I would say this as I write them!)but definitely look at the sample issue.

The only part I don't like are the Performance Watches - they change very little from week to week, and I have to print the mag in 2 sections to cut them out. no.gif

We understand that they are not for everybody - but at least one subscriber only subscribes because we have them... so we have to try and cater to everybody.

I'm surprised that anyone would subscribe *just* for those. ohmy.gif

Why do you only do them for stars that've kicked the bucket though? There are a number of living stars who are virtually ever-presents in the charts too...

Is their an artist you'd like to see have one? Because we are always open to considering new things.
