Technorati Report on the Blogosphere


                                         Technorati is known widely for its quarterly State of the Blogosphere reports, analyzing the trends
around blogs and blogging.

They  released their recent report this week.(April 2007) 

70 Milion blogs out there now! Thats  about 120,000 per day or 1.4 blogs every second!

“Spam and splogs (spam blogs) continue to be a problem in the blogosphere, and there was a marked increase in splogs that coincided with the holiday season last year. Technorati has been tracking between 3,000 – 7,000 new splogs created each day, but there was a significant spike in splog creation during early December, when we tracked over 11,000 splogs created each day during December – a total of 341,000 splogs that we removed from our indexes during that period.”

Other interesting notes – There are about 1.5 million posts per day, or… 17 posts per second.  Japanese the #1 blogging language at 37%, with English second at 33% , Chinese third at 8%  and Italian fourth at 3% .
