Billboard Year-End Hot 100 charts. Note that from 1956 to 1958, Billboard only compiled top 50 charts, and from 1950 to 1955, they compiled only top 30 charts. What is now the Hot 100 existed for nearly fifteen years as numerous charts, tracking and ranking the most popular singles of the day in several areas. The methods and policies by which this data is obtained and compiled have changed many times throughout the chart's history. Billboard has also changed its Hot 100 policy regarding "two-sided singles" several times. During periods in which singles sales were strong, the Hot 100 allowed both sides of a single (A-side and B-side) to chart together (occupying the same position), provided that both sides were receiving significant radio airplay. Pre-Hot 100 charts listed A-and-B-sides together. For more detailed information on how the Billboard compiled the charts, see the Wikipedia article "Billboard Hot 100".
