David Sifry's (Technorati) 'State of the Blogosphere' brings to us how the blogs are expanding in the world. More than 57 million weblogs were tracked to produce the statistics. Technorati has taken measures this time to keep Spam blogs or splogs out of the indexes to reduce the garbage. To summarize:
- The blogosphere is doubling in size approximately every 230 days.
- About 100,000 new weblogs were created each day.
- The globalization of the blogosphere continues. English and Spanish languages are a more universal blog language than the other two most dominant language, Japanese and Chinese, which seem to be more regionally localized.
- Coincident with a rise in blog posts about escalating Middle East tensions throughout the summer and fall, Farsi has moved into the top 10 languages of the blogosphere, indicating that blogging continues to play a critical role in debates about the important issues of our times.
