Name: Bangin Links Music Search

Located:  http://www.banginlinks.co.uk
Description: Bangin' Links is a music search engine and music news website.  Designed in March 2002 this site was a hit straight away.  During the hit show 'Pop Idol' where the UK public voted on their favourite singers the website featured a Pop Idol section and a TopSites list was created.  The TopSite list received 300,000 visitors in a week, the site only being online for 2 months.  Presently it continues to receive an average of 250,000 page views daily; from an average of 5,000 unique visitors.
Format: The website uses Server Side Includes (SHTML) meaning updating the website takes no more than 5 minutes.  The news section is updated online, administrators log in to update the news and in return it is automatically appended on the web page. The TopSites and search engine itself were originally coded in Perl.  JavaScript is used on the Menu and around the site.
