Technorati Weblog: State of the Blogosphere, August 2005, Part 1: Blog Growth (711 words)
In March 2005 we were tracking 7.8 million blogs, which means the blogosphere has just about doubled again in the past 5 months, and that the blogosphere continues to double about every 5.5 months.
You can see the charts from March 2005 and November 2004 to get an idea of how this is increasing, although all the data is included on the chart above.
Later in the week I'll also describe the rise of tags, the increase in spam (or fake) blogs and SEO, and give an update on the relative influence of blogs compared to the mainstream media.
