State of the Blogosphere

Here's some interesting statistics on the state of the blogosphere from the CEO of Technorati. Apparently, the number of blogs DOUBLES every six months and is only continuing to grow. Thanks to the Blog Herald for the info.

Dave Sifry, CEO of Technorati, has posted Part I of his quarterly State of the Blogosphere at his site.

Leading off with this major headline, Sifry outlines the continuing onslaught of the blogosphere:

I continue to marvel at it, but the blogosphere continues to grow at a quickening pace. Technorati currently tracks 35.3 Million weblogs, and the blogosphere we track continues to double about every 6 months

Sifry goes on to outline some other significant metrics:

  • 75,000 new blogs created daily
  • 3.9m bloggers update at least once weekly
  • Technorati is tracking approximately 50,000 posts an hour
  • 19.4m bloggers are still blogging today after starting at least 3 months ago

Other parts of the State of the Blogosphere should be posted soon providing more in-depth analysis of some factors.
