    The illustration shows the comparison between the number of visited music sites which are the music choice and pop parade in the web from day 1 to 15. To sum up, pop parade was frequently visited at day 1 compared to music choice being outnumbered, despite fluctuations in theirs ratings, at day 15 pop parade soars to the highest and music choice remains second despite its rapid increase in day 12.

    As seen in the table music choice accounts to 40 at day 1 and then drops 20 later increased to double by day 2 and 3 respectively, by day 4 it falls back to 20 and remains its intermittent fluctuations until day 11. at day 12 dramatic soar to 120 was recorded it then went down to day 13 gaining its rate again by 14th day, then sudden drop to the last day by around 70. Meanwhile, the pop paradise aimed at 120 on the day 1, consistent until day 3 but later had gradual and dramatic drop in day 7 to 9 which nearly hit down the chart of the music choice, it regained its rate on day 11 as it soar to about 150 plummeted to day 12 went down to 80 by day 13. it rose to around 160 on the day 14 then raised to 170 being the highest rank in the last day.
