Knocking At The Door …
Back in August, Nick Jonas was knocking at the door with the smoky dreamy song Chains. Now that his smash hit Jealous is completing its run, Nick knocks again at # 110.

I was asked last week, “What happened to the Top Line chart? I can’t find it.” It’s been around at the official site as usual, but I haven’t had much time to come here and post it at the blog. Don’t worry, the Top Line 100 isn’t going anywhere. The archives will be expanded too.

  1. You’ve probably been asked this hundreds of times now, but I can’t find any current weekly lists since late January 2015, either here, your twitter account, your facebook page, or your website. Have you stopped compiling? I very much enjoyed (and still do) your website, and would love to see it updated. I visit Billboard weekly, but it’s not the same. 🙂

  2. Dear Kyle:

    Thank you for your support over the years. I apologize for not seeing this comment for a while. I stopped updating the charts at last year when I was hit with a Google malware violation. I still collect the information needed to process the charts, but I probably will never return to posting them.

    During five very long and intensive months last year, we created a total back-end site redesign to make things run more smoothly, to expand the site, and to automate processes. The goal was to make the site more easily updated in all respects and to make the processing of the three weekly charts run in just a few hours instead of about 30 hours. I completed most of it. When it was all done, we was going to do a front-end redesign too.

    Next thing you know, Google hit us with a malware warning. And then again. And again. Right in the middle of all, distracting the process. It appears they blamed their competition Bidvertiser for it, but of course, they didn’t put it quite that way. How convenient.

    You would think that if a company as large as Bidvertiser were sending out malware, it would be news. I found nothing anywhere online. You would also think Google might know, and Google might be more specific and perhaps — God forbid — more lenient in forgiving websites where Bidvertiser was in use. But no. Google treats us like criminals. Violations. Risks of click fraud. Malware warnings. And now, search engine bans. Whatever.

    This is when I gave up on the current charts. I could no longer justify the amount of time and money being spent on the site. I got the site back up and clean one last time to keep it around for posterity.

    The decision to quit updating charts was partially the result of my own mistakes, but mostly due to non-stop vague penalties by Google. They started in 2012, six years after I signed up for AdSense, and they continue today — Tunecaster was just eliminated from Google search. That’s why I came here today.

    First, in 2012, Google suspended the AdSense account and income dropped by about 70 percent. At that time, they complained of the “risk” of “encouraging clicks.” Put it this way — click-through rates were declining, and that alone should tell them that I was not “encouraging” clicks. I made some changes and put in a so-called “appeal” which was never answered nor even acknowledged.

    Google paid my last full month’s revenue early, and still holds just under $100 for the month of suspension. You know what else is interesting? The Google suspension took place a few days after Tunecaster received a major traffic increase — some 70 percent — which became permanent. Since then, traffic has more than tripled with thousands of unique visitors daily (except of course when Google put up warnings or most recently de-listed the site). Visitors spend a good amount of time on the site — just to read through the charts and lists. Tunecaster visitors like the site.

    Granted as I look back to the initial AdSense suspension in 2012 that the site was probably still in violation of the terms when I first appealed, so I went ahead guessing what to do and made huge changes — deleting thousands of pages with possible violations permanently — redesigning the layout — beefing up the information — and working on the back end to make things easier. All the while, I kept the site up-to-date for the thousands of regular readers. That was the priority.

    I then filed another appeal. This time I was denied vaguely in a few hours. And then a year later, a third time. Same result. Vague denial. Needless to say, my time and money — and the time of others working for free — was wasted.

    A short conversation with someone at Google would have made all the difference — a short conversation that would have netted Google tens of thousands of dollars in its share of the revenue over the years since. It makes me wonder why Google would forego this opportunity to make money for a tiny cost — but I have a few ideas which I’ll save for later.

    Ironically, it appears that Google’s malware and de-listing issues were caused directly as a result of my choice to use other advertisers after the AdSense suspension.

    That is why the site is no longer current. In a word: Google.

    I am not looking to get rich here and the Tunecaster site is definitely not a get-rich-quick scheme (started through original work dating back to 1974), but the site needed to make four figures per month to even be worth keeping as a hobby or supplement. If that happened, I would probably have run it for another 30 years.

    Cross your fingers that the site gets re-listed. But don’t ever expect updates again. I cannot justify another 80 hour week just to hope that AdSense will reinstate the account. They won’t.

    This was the short version. Maybe I’ll post the whole story with screenshots in a post sometime.

    On a positive note, you know what’s really cool? We had a surprisingly large number of visitors yesterday, the second full day after the de-listing. 🙂

    Contact me at Twitter where I still visit about twice a month.

  4. I have really enjoyed tunecaster over the years; however, over the past several weeks as soon as I clicked the “70s”, a redirect froze my screen and immediately downloaded dangerous “cryptolock” type trojans. Fortunately, MS Security Essentials was able to identify and quarantine the files before damage occurred. BrowserModifier:Win32/HapadeF, Trojan:Win32Chroject.D!dll
