  1. Used to be pretty easy to tell with Technorati and tools like that but now with things like Microblogging and Tumblr it’s getting a lot harder to measure. I also think a lot of more traditional bloggers are getting drawn away to social media as a quicker way of getting engagement but there are alos more professional blogs as well

    More and more people are creating blogs because of its potential to outrank static websites. Updated blogs are favored by most of the Search Engines especially Google. And according to the infographic, most blogs serve ads and paid postings and links. The discovery of the earning potential of blogging made the blogosphere huge. And many more to come in the future.

    Who would have figured blogging would become such a powerful weapon in online marketing. I actually remember Yuri Mintskovsky using his blog a couple of years ago to start up his online marketing business and he started being more and more successful with it.

  4. Wow only 40% use WordPress, i would of thought that was highter?

  5. Dave Thomas says:

    That’s mental how blogs are still growing, I thought they reached their peak, I guess not.

  6. Interesting infographic. I like these and this one is well presented.

    The idea of scoping and recording data about blogs is an excellent one – but the data collection needs to be transparent and robust.

    I’m wondering where the data came from – if it’s from the Technorati survey I saw I didn’t complete it as it had some major flaws in terms of the questions asked and the sampling frame. Did Technorati or Blogpulse tell you how the data was collected?

    I honestly don’t think either Technorati or BlogPulse are particularly good at measuring the blogs which are out there. I guess a combined result might be better – but IMO they’re still counting an awful lot of dead blogs (by which I mean blogs which haven’t has any new posts in the last 12 months or more)

    For the record my art blog has had over a million visitors, is ranked by Invesp in the top 20 art blogs in the world (and it’s also ranked #3 in the UK) and yet Blogpulse had never heard of it! Hence my scepticism….

    I love blogging. It is a commitment but it does make a difference in our business. 🙂

  8. There is no doubt about the power of blogging and the potential to become even bigger. I do not see social media having much of an impact to the size of the blogging community.

    Very interesting and useful to understand the evolution and the full growing of e-bussines. It’s very important for the bloggers. I’d like to get the same info about all over the world. Thanks…
