The year 2012 passes by leaving us to ponder on a lot of things including the state of our music industry. What really happened? Where the genre rock disappeared? I guess the politically, socially and security wise awkward Pakistan has led to the change of mindset of the audience as well as musicians. Good thing was that the new comers made their mark this year, while the mainstream artists had less to offer to this market. Like last year I am creating this top ten list on the criteria of popularity on ViewsCraze along with social sites Youtube & Vimeo. After digging in to the stats, I would like to add a personal favorite list as well because the stats don’t do justice to some amazing underrated tracks for the year 2012. Here, check out the list of top ten songs of 2012 below.

As a web publisher instead of relying on personal taste we have to have a good knowledge about the audience taste and what they really want to see every time they sit on the World Wide Web. As a year passes by we get to look back at the pros & cons and witness how successful the past really was. For ViewsCraze it has been a blossoming start. 2011 was quite successful in many ways as we grew and gained the confidence & affection of our viewers. Though we are not that big of a music site or a complete music site like Pakistan’s best (KoolMuzone & Pakium), still digging deep into our stats was something interesting. We are blessed by ranking at first page on Google for almost all artists and designers we post about, which by the way is the major source of traffic for us accumulating about 86% of the traffic. I’m excluding songs of Coke Studio 4 from this list as I would be analyzing them separately. Enough of the talking lets dig into the stats for music for the year 2011 and see who had the huge impact on the audience. The formula I used here is generated by me. (Yeah! studying stats and math’s for 2 years finally had some effect). It’s simple because all I wanted to show was the rating of MOST wanted song of the year on viewscraze. It involves addition of number of views, number of downloads and number of search queries per the amount of days it has been posted on viewscraze. Then I considered the number of times a new visitor landed on that particular song page because post views can be increased by a same returning visitor, so to neglect that, a new visitor every time visited that page was considered as well. Here, check out the top ten songs of 2011!
