Should be combined with #5922

if that was the case than all wrestlers would be here regardless if they released full albums, singles, or on compilations:

EX: Hulk Hogan, released an album with various artists, 2 singles and has his own page.

EX: Jimmy Hart only released singles, and has appeared on wrestling themed albums and has his own page

EX: Macho Man, released a full ablum has his own page

there are other examples, but if the album credits the song to The Wrestlers, Wrestling Cast, WWF/WWE Allstars than it would be placed here, if the song lists the main artist(s) than I would thik they would get their own page.

But what happens is there is a double artist for Captain Lou. Some songs are listed under The Wrestlers while the same songs are listed here. Somehow it would make sense to combine the pages or separate them all. If you look up Captain Lou's History of Music the song shows up under both.

There's just one way this has always been done when there are multiple artists credited. If Captain Lou has a track with other WWF/WWE guys, the track will link to his page, but the artist on the song page can be changed to credit everyone involved in it. No matter what it's changed to, the page will still link to his artist page.

The point of all this is to allow visitors to the site to find a song or album with as little fuss as possible.

Yes... But if you look on the songpage Darren just played this and it shows up under The Wrestlers. Also a song page for Captain Lou's History shows that it hasn't been played on a show yet but has the mp3 and album picture whereas the other songpage doesn't but shows that it's been played multiple times. So depending on how the song gets looked up will give different results. I would think they would need to be linked somehow to avoid confusion?

Currently there is 3 song pages for that song.... One is blank.... Another pulls up under captain lou.... And the 3rd under the wrestlers. Same song but all 3 have different information.

Ok, later today (have to grocery shop & pay bills right now) I'll go through all these 'wrestlers' song/artist pages and anything with identical mp3s or far too similar info will get checked out then merged. This also makes finding songs easier for site visitors.

At some point, I may even find time to finish that podcast I'm working on.

Sounds good.... Just trying to help. I would also think alot of listeners would find the site based on a google search of a song too.

Some song page merging took place. Also, it seems Halfshell was right. 'Do The Mario' was an independent effort when Lou portrayed the plumber on a kid's show a while back. This justifies a separate page for him as the song wasn't wrestling related...as far as I know.

As for googling songs, that's not all that leads here. I've been editor here for 10 years. Just try googling 'Stavro Arrgolus' and you'll find not just a massive amount of links to this site, but also lyrics or song info I've added on dozens of other sites. They often just copy & paste them without noticing my username (or someone else who added lyrics) is at the bottom of every lyric box.

10 years of this makes it crazy. I find my name on Russian music sites & all manner of others.

Yes.... Things like that can make things tricky...... But for Google I was thinking of the general public or casual comedy music fan where the search might not be as specific. For example they might seach Captain Lou song.... Wrestling song... Etc.

If it's more links we're seeking for the visitor, one internal factor will help.

I changed this page a bit by taking out abbreviations and adding the name to the 'members' box. This is something everyone should do as it can add a pre-programmed autolink below the box. The page now contains a 'see also' box that links to 'The Wrestlers' page...perhaps it did before...I forget.

Links to other artist pages gives visitors more info. They may even want to hear a show that the song came from and that's good for us all. So it's always helpful to put the artist's stage name in the artist page's members box. Real names are added in the 'aka' line directly above it.

Sounds good! I'd be curious to see how some of the listeners find songs... Aka Nick Danger.... For a long skit it seems to get alot of views and likes for the songpage. I did a random Google search to see if any groups etc would pull up and didn't find anything I could say was the cause of it. I'm just curious why that particular skit is so popular vs a shorter Nick Danger skit or a popular song like Purple People Eater or Fishheads for example. The listeners/viewers must be coming from somewhere.... I find it interesting.

Short answer: "Because the entire bit appears in the lyric box." This is also true of "Temporarily Humboldt County", another Firesign bit from their first album that appears in its entirety in the page's lyric box. The other FS pages don't have lyrics...because I couldn't find them.

As for why visitors seek it out, that's presumably for the same reason I added them to begin with. I had both FS albums these bits come from in the '60s and I thought, "Why isn't this stuff on the internet somewhere now? Moreover, why doesn't this site have them?" So I fixed that.
