World Blogosphere Report

If you have the time (and the patience too) to dig deeper regarding the blogosphere. This one is fine reading.

Some pick-ups below:

On July 31, 2006, Technorati tracked its 50 millionth blog.

Blogosphere is over 100 times bigger than it was just 3 years ago.

Today, the blogosphere is doubling in size every 200 days, or about once every 6 and a half months.

From January 2004 until July 2006, almost two and a half years later, the number of blogs that Technorati tracks has continued to double every 5-7 months.

About 175,000 new weblogs were created each day, which means that on average, there are more than 2 blogs created each second of each day.

About 70% of the pings Technorati receives are from known spam sources.

There are about 1.6 Million postings per day 9including ths one), or about 18.6 posts per second. This is about double the volume of about a year ago.

The most prevalent times for English-language posting is between the hours of 10AM and 2PM Pacific time, with an additional spike at around 5PM Pacific time.
