I have seen many girls use this site in the past but it is NOT valid for actual receipts, merely a vague indication of what actual sales are.
Here is MediaTraffic's Top 10 albums of 2005:
Green Day - American Idiot - 7.986.000 copies
Coldplay - X&Y - 7.766.000 copies
50 Cent - The Massacre - 7.120.000 copies
Mariah Carey - The Emancipation Of Mimi - 6.972.000 copies
Black Eyed Peas - Monkey Business - 6.090.000 copies
Kelly Clarkson - Breakaway - 5.493.000 copies
Gwen Stefani - Love, Angel, Music, Baby - 4.685.000 copies
James Blunt - Back To Bedlam - 4.462.000 copies
Gorillaz - Demon Days - 4.079.000 copies
Madonna - Confessions On A Dance Floor. - 4.031.000 copies
Now here is the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) (AKA real valid receipts from an official label-recognized association) as reported by BBC in 2005:
1. Coldplay, X&Y (8.3m)
2. Mariah Carey, The Emancipation of Mimi (7.7m)
3. 50 Cent, The Massacre (7.5m)
4. Black Eyed Peas, Monkey Business (6.8m)
5. Green Day, American Idiot (6.4m)
6. Madonna, Confessions on a Dance Floor (6.3m)
7. Kelly Clarkson, Breakaway (6.1m)
8. Eminem, Curtain Call (5.5m)
9. James Blunt, Back to Bedlam (5.5m)
10. Robbie Williams, Intensive Care (5.4m)
I think it's because it doesnt use every country while IFPI does
Anyway doesnt IFPI only does like the top 10?
If yes that why stans use it they got nothing else

Rolling Stone review Diamonds World Tour
Throughout the night, she used her hand like a cat its tongue, rubbing her thighs like she's rolling out dough, patting her crotch as if slapping cheese on a burger.
No wonder Gaga's manager always told everyone the album sold 8.000.000 copies, not 6 million
Because as I can see, all the numbers are actually a lot bigger than MediaTraffic claims.
Originally posted by liberalmusiclover > Rihanna is better vocally than Lady Gaga and her music is diverse. Katy Perry is better at playing instruments and Ke$ha is a better songwriter (Till The World Ends lyrical content >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Any song written by Lady Gaga)...
Yet you're using BBC News as your source for those ridiculous numbers. I would love to see a link from IPFI's site with those numbers, since they never published them.

Everybody KNOWS that, but that's the only thing we have . As you can see they are really off with international artists (see Madonna and James Blunt) with US- artists is only like 500 - 600K more
They were pretty OFF with Green Day though

I'm in a hotel in London. There's 2 D!ke stans playing back the Truth About D!ke tour videos. Some old dike with pink streaks in her hair (she was AUSTRALIAN) comes over and stans out with them- telling the dikes how she's going again tonight. I mean I'm just sat over here having my breakfast, and suddenly the horrid caterwauling of So What starts blaring through a phone. A stereotypical mess. All her stans are dikes, Australians, and Australian dikes.
