FAQ

How do we count visitors?  A unique "visitor" is someone who visits any page on the site, leaves, and does not return for at least an hour.  So if you visit billyfury.com, spend 30 minutes on the site, and look at 20 different pages, you will be counted only once.  If you return two hours later, you will be counted again.  (When people refer to "hits" that is normally taken nowadays to mean the number of file accesses, which always sounds impressive but is pretty meaningless - if we recorded hits, a typical month's figure would be about three-quarters of a million.) 

Message board.  Visits to the message board account for about 10-15% of total visits.

Popular pages. Some pages regularly attract a lot of traffic from search engines, and lead to new visitors exploring the site further.  These include the pages on the hand jive and Heinz's last performance.  Among purely Billy Fury pages, in addition to the obvious ones that attract attention from people taking an interest in his life and music, popular ones include the feature on Billy's ladies and the one on his final days.  The A-Z of recordings is very heavily trafficked by people seeking particular songs.
