The model.vnuAlbumId field has to be ignored. Billboard used to have a page per album that presented only the charting information for that particular album. That structure has been dropped, and the charting information is only filtered by performing artist at this time. In essence, all of these URLs have to get pointed one step up in the information hierarchy.
In these, the editor placed a link to the current edition of a chart: data that lasted precisely one week before being overwritten, generally several years ago. These will be processed using Chartbot 5's infobox logic. If there is at least one infobox of the types
then Chartbot will validate that all the infoboxes in the article refer to the same artist. If so, it constructs a URL that points to this chart type entry for the artist.
3) http://www.billboard.com/song/<artist name>/<song name>/<recording id> and http://www.billboard.com/album/<artist name>/<song name>/<recording id>
These links face the same difficulty as link 1: even in the rare cases that I can map this to a recording page at all, the recording pages no longer carry any information: all they have is a discussion forum link. These links will get targeted at the chart history of the artist rather than the song.
4) http://www.billboard.com/artist/<artist name>/discography/songs/<number> and http://www.billboard.com/artist/<artist name>/discography/albums/<number>
Similar issues as with 1 and 3 occur: Billboard used to split the chart data into an "albums" section and a "songs" section. It no longer provides this separation, and the data needs to repoint at the artist chart history.

Uneventful trial run from 2 apr 2013 05:24 to 2 apr 2013 06:02. No problems found. As expected, it sometimes provides a little broader URL than the context of the article would require, but it seems to be providing URLs that fill the need.—Kww(talk) 06:20, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
