Technorati’s State of the Blogosphere / 2008

September 22nd, 2008 by Moti Karmona | מוטי קרמונה · No Comments

Thing I & Thing IITechnorati have finally started to release the “state of the blogosphere” report.

I must admit I was really waiting for this shitty report and I hate the fact that I need to see this reports in shards (will be released in five consecutive daily segments) but it was worth waiting until now.

2008 Blogosphere statistics includes:

  • 133 million blogs (indexed by Technorati since 2002) was 70 million last year… (The State of the Live Web, April 2007)
  • 7.4 million blogs posted in the last 120 days
  • 1.5 million blogs posted in the last 7 days (did you? ;-)
  • 900,000 Blog posts in 24 hours = ~10 Blog posts per sec. (!!!) – Technorati claims that spam filtering have reduced the numbers they published last year (1.4 million blog posts per day)
  • 66% of bloggers are male…
  • 63% are ages 25 to 44
  • 79% personal blogs
  • 59% have been blogging for more than two years.
  • 44% are parents
  • … and with the mean annual revenue of $6K blogs are also claimed to be profitable (a.k.a. not mine)

WOW (!!!)
