Dave Sifry's State of the blogosphere

For those of you who have not seen the Technorati quarterly report from Dave Sifry, have a quick read it  certainly makes fascinating reading and analysis on the rapid growth of the blogosphere and the internationalisation effect of the web. No wonder it’s getting harder to be heard!



Summary SnapShot:

  • Technorati is now tracking more than 57 Million blogs.
  • Today, the blogosphere is doubling in size approximately every 230 days.
  • About 100,000 new weblogs were created each day, again down slightly quarter-over-quarter but probably due in part to spam fighting efforts.
  • The globalization of the blogosphere continues. Our data appears to show both English and Spanish languages are a more universal blog language than the other two most dominant language, Japanese and Chinese, which seem to be more regionally localized.
