TicketNews.com is a comprehensive resource for news, market analysis, event announcements, and information relating to the ticket industry. TicketNews.com keeps industry professionals and fans informed about tour dates, current and pending ticket resale legislation, rankings, onsales, and more. The content is updated daily, with original articles from ten TicketNews.com reporters and an aggregation of 3rd party sources.

TicketNews.com developed the algorithm for the exclusive weekly rankings of the industry's ticket sellers. Top sellers rankings and power scores are based on web traffic received by a ticket seller's website. The power score is highly correlated with the number of transactions from the TicketNetwork Exchange™, the world's largest secondary ticket market exchange. A top seller power score illustrates a given seller's category-specific significance. Three factors obtained from multiple independent resources, including comScore and Hitwise, are used to compare sellers within a particular category.

1. Number of unique visitors (IP addresses visiting a website in a 24-hour
   period).
2. Number of visits (a series of one or more page requests by a visitor
   without 30 consecutive minutes of inactivity).
3. Page views (the average number of unique pages viewed by a unique
   visitor).

Top seller power scores should only be used to compare sellers within a particular category. TicketNews.com also ranks the top events weekly. For more information, visit www.ticketnews.com/ticket_industry_rankings.
