Billboard.com Has More Links From Wikipedia Than CNN

The Dow Jones of pop has more links from Wikipedia than "the worldwide leader in news," USA Today, Reuters or the L.A. Times.

Posted on
The top source for Wikipedia is books.google.com, followed by web.archive.org and the BBC's news website. Billboard.com came in 29th, beating a lot of news sites, but it makes sense when considering Wikipedia has the complete discography of countless recording artists. Search any artist, and you can find out how their songs charted on the Billboard Hot 10.
