The Latest State of the Blogosphere

Posted By Darren Rowse 2nd of August 2005 Pro Blogging News 4

Sifry is doing another State of the Blogosphere series – the first of which looks at some overall growth figures of the Blogging community. Here’s his summary points:

‘Technorati was tracking over 14.2 Million weblogs, and over 1.3 billion links in July 2005

The blogosphere continues to double about every 5.5 months

A new blog is created about every second, there are over 80,000 created daily

About 55% of all blogs are active, and that has remained a consistent statistic for at least a year

About 13% of all blogs are updated at least weekl’

The posts later in the week will probably shed more light on the topic of the state of the blogging community – I’m especially interested in what they’ve got to say about the rise of fake blogs which in my anecdotal evidence seems to be an increasing problem.

  1. Wow, one blog every second … if this number will grow then will shortly be more new blogs than newborn babies. ;-)

  2. Yea Miha, but the mortality rate of blogs is rather short. I am willing to bet that a vast majority of blogs have been abandoned or they are not posted to very often. I go to all the time and use their next button at the top to see different blogs. A lot of them have not been posted to a week or more.

  3. They need a blog obituaries. There’s a website to start…

  4. Scott – that’s not a bad idea :-)
