Technorati & Blogosphere Growth

Technorati seems to have improved a lot - their recent Performance & Scale Up Efforts seem to be working very well for them. Dave sifry has come out with his periodically published update of blogosphere growth - everytime he comes with a update , the mindbogling growth seen in the blogosphere is simply amazing. Dave notes that the blogosphere has been growing at an explosive rate - Technorati is now indexing over 14 million blogs, with about 80,000 new blogs created every day.

That's about a new blog created every second! And there's about 900,000 new posts every day, which means about 37,500 posts per hour that Technorati is indexing
. Key Findings :
- Technorati was tracking over 14.2 Million weblogs and over 1.3 billion links in July 2005
- The blogosphere continues to double about every 5.5 months
- A new blog is created about every second, there are over 80,000 created daily
- About 55% of all blogs are active, and that has remained a consistent statistic for at least a year
- About 13% of all blogs are updated at least weekly
- Technorati is tracking about 900,000 blog posts created every day, That's about 10.4 blog posts per second, on average.
- Median time from posting to inclusion in the Technorati index is under 5 minutes
- Significant increases in posting volume are due to increased mainstream use of easy hosted tools as well as simple posting interfaces like post-from-IM and moblogging tools
- Weekends tend to be slower posting days by about 5-10% of the weekly averages
- During the day, posting tends to peak between the hours of 7AM and noon Pacific time (10AM - 3PM Eastern time)
- Worldwide news events cause ripples through the blogosphere - not only in search volume, but also in posting volume
