This article provides information related to Weblogs, according to David Sifry, founder of Technorati. In July 2005, Technorati was tracking over 14.2 million Weblogs and more than 1.3 billion links. The blogosphere continues to double about every 5.5 months. Moreover, Technorati is tracking about 900,000 blog posts created every day. That is about 10.4 blog posts per second, on average. Significant increases in posting volume are due to increased mainstream use of easy hosted tools as well as simple posting interfaces like postfrom-IM and moblogging tools. Worldwide news events cause ripples through the blogosphere not only in search volume, but also in posting volume.
