Technorati – State of the Blogosphere

I just stumbled upon Technorati’s quarterly State of the Blogosphere and would like to share with you.

Below are some figures from the report:

  • Over 70 million weblogs tracked
  • About 120,000 new weblogs each day, or…
  • 1.4 new blogs every second
  • 3000-7000 new splogs (fake, or spam blogs) created every day
  • Peak of 11,000 splogs per day last December
  • 1.5 million posts per day, or…
  • 17 posts per second
  • Growing from 35 to 75 million blogs took 320 days
  • 22 blogs among the top 100 blogs among the top 100 sources linked to in Q4 2006 – up from 12 in the prior quarter
  • Japanese the #1 blogging language at 37%
    English second at 33%
    Chinese third at 8%
    Italian fourth at 3%
    Farsi a newcomer in the top 10 at 1%
    English the most even in postings around-the-clock
  • Tracking 230 million posts with tags or categories
  • 35% of all February 2007 posts used tags
  • 2.5 million blogs posted at least one tagged post in February


What can we learn from these numbers?
