State of Blogosphere

David Sifry posted an updated on the state of blogosphere with some interesting information:


As of March 2005, technorati is tracking 7.8m weblogs (937 millions links) growing at 30k to 40k per day.

Another interesting part is this paragraph:

There is a dark underbelly to these numbers, however: Part of the growth of new weblogs created each day is due to an increase in spam blogs – fake blogs that are created by robots in order to foster link farms, attempted search engine optimization, or drive traffic through to advertising or affiliate sites.

Of course! Since spammers are finding it harder and harder to spam other people blogs, they setup their own! :-)
