State Of The Blogosphere Report – Oct 2005

Dave sifry has come out with the State of the blogsphere Oct 2005 report. Key findings include:
- As of October 2005, Technorati is now tracking 19.6 Million weblogs
- The total number of weblogs tracked continues to double about every 5 months
- The blogosphere is now over 30 times as big as it was 3 years ago, with no signs of letup in growth
- About 70,000 new weblogs are created every day
- About a new weblog is created each second
- 2% - 8% of new weblogs per day are fake or spam weblogs
- Between 700,000 and 1.3 Million posts are made each day
- About 33,000 posts are created per hour, or 9.2 posts per second
- An additional 5.8% of posts (or about 50,000 posts/day) seen each day are from spam or fake blogs, on average
It also appears that blogging is taking off around the world, and not just in English. Some of the significant increases seen over the past 3 months have been due to a proliferation of chinese-speaking weblogs, both on MSN Spaces as well as on Chinese sites like blogcn.com. Nicholas Carr points out(sarcastically) that this means that we can now predict, with considerable confidence, that in approximately three and a half years - no later than the end of the decade - every human being on earth, including infants, will be writing a blog. The comments on his blogsite made by viewers are quite thought provoking - the projection looks like the failed projection of web server growth one comment notes. Technortai seems to be doing a decent job in upgrading its infrastructure and in the process seems to be making some success(partial) on fixing the problems.
