October Sifry State of the Blogosphere Report Released

It’s that time of year again when David Sifry takes on the blogosphere with his State of the Blogosphere Report for the period ending in October.

The last report sent shockwaves of amazement and delight throughout the web, not just the Blogosphere. So what new and fascinating things has he dug up this time?

To summarize:

* 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
