If we award top3 of each year,like in athletics,
then we have a voting system where 1st place takes 3 points,
2nd place takes 2 points,
and 3rd place takes 1 point.

So the 10 most successful countries in history of eurovision are:
1. ::uk United Kingdom 48 points
2. ::ie Ireland 30 points
3. ::fr France 30 points
4. ::se Sweden 22 points
5. ::de Germany 19 points
6. ::lu Luxembourg 17 points
7. ::es Spain 15 points
8. ::ch Switzerland 15 points
9. ::il Israel 14 points
10. ::it Italy 14 points

I think a fair way would be to also divide it to how many times a country has entered the contest, to get an average number instead, because it's obvious that countries that have been longer in the contest would look "more successful" according to this reasoning... but are they really? I think success must be counted taken into consideration how many times you've entered.

Yeah, I agree. For example Azerbaijan has joined in 2008 to family and they always took top 10, just once lost top 5, took top 3 twice as well.

The way I rank the countries is to look at the top ten, with the same points system as used in voting, i.e. 1st = 12 pts, 2nd = 10 pts, 3rd = 8 pts 4th = 7 pts, 5th = 6 pts, 6th = 5 pts, 7th = 4 pts, 8th = 3 pts, 9th = 2 pts and 10th = 1 pt.Not

The state of things immediately after the ESC 2012 are here on my blog (http://nemesis-nick.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/eurovision-song-contest-league-tables.html). Note that I've also created tables for average by finals entered, and average by years entered. The average tables are fairer as they take into consideration that Azerbaijan have only been in the ESC the last few years, yet done well (including one win) in that time, yet the UK has been in since 1957 (and has since only missed 1958). On the two average tables, Azerbaijan tops the pecking order.
