Technorati: Over 75,000 new weblogs created every day
April 19, 2006 by Gaman
Dave Sifry, CEO of Technorati has posted the first part of a report in his blog regarding the state of the Blogosphere.
The blogosphere is over 60 times bigger than it was only 3 years ago.
New blog creation continues to grow. Technorati currently tracks over 75,000 new weblogs created every day, which means that on average, a new weblog is created every second of every day – and 19.4 million bloggers (55%) are still posting 3 months after their blogs are created. That’s an increase both absolute and relative terms over just 3 months ago, when only 50.5% or 13.7 million blogs were active. In other words, even though there’s a reasonable amount of tire-kicking going on, blogging continues to grow as a habitual activity.
In addition to that, about 3.9 million bloggers update their blogs at least weekly.
I think the growth is partly fueled by the realization that bloggers can actually make money using Adsense and other advertising means. But that’s just part of the equation of course.
Also I wonder how many of those are real blogs and not simply splogs (spam blogs).
