    If somebody songs features an artist there single is certiftied Gold is that also the featured artist numbers.

    Like Chamillionaire on Ciara's Get UP on Riaa it comes up when I type in his named so do I count as his numbers too?

    It depends on how it's listed on the certification site.

    If it is stated somewhere, on wiki or other sites, that an artist/band sold "x" million records in the US, or worldwide or whatever, does it mean albums only, or both albums and singles together? So does "record" only mean album? Cause if it says "x" million albums then it is obvious, but what about "records"..

    Billboard doesn't give out that information.

    There's no way to tell, unfortunately, although it seems 'records' means albums and singles.

    It depends on what time the single was released. Right now, 4 million, like albums.
    It depends on when it was last certified, not when it was released. When certification rules change in the US, they are retroactive.

    I've got a question about the itunes charts, I read they work on a rolling 24 hours basis, does anyone know what that means? does it mean everything starts from scratch?

    What are the rules for CD reissues, in terms of whether sales are added to the original CD, or the reissue starts its own accumalation of sales?

    Sub Pop Records will be Reissuing Nirvana's Bleach Album to mark its 20th Anniversary on Nov. 3, 2009. The reissue will include a remastered Bleach, plus a full remixed concert from 1990. This will be a 2 cd package.

    Quick question about amazon.com

    1. Do sales of New Albums count towards Soundscan?

    2. Many albums are available for presale months before release. Do these presales all count for sales of the first week of official release?

    ^
    ^

    Yes for both!

    Albums that are released exclusively through, let's say, Amazon, chart at the Digital Album charts. Those sales are taken under consideration by Soundscan as normal sales!

    I was wondering if any of you guys have seen the Yahoo "best selling singles list"

    http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/yra...the-year-2000/

    I saw some estimations of the same singles on this site and there is a HUGE difference...

    Why?

    Do music video sales count towards a songs total?

    In the US, music video sales from legal download outlets are not counted in a songs total and do not help a song on the Billboard charts.
    in which country are those sales counted?
