Business Blogging On The Up - Technorati State of the Blogosphere 2008

by Paul Thewlis | October 2008 | MySQL Content Management Open Source PHP WordPress

"Technorati recently published its annual report, State of the Blogosphere 2008. As usual, it makes interesting reading, especially for those of us interested in business blogging.

The report shows that Technorati has indexed 133 million blogs since 2002. 1.5 million blogs have been updated in the last 7 days and 7.4 million in the last 120 days. These figures support my argument in the first chapter of my book, WordPress For Business Bloggers, that business bloggers should not be put off by the total number of blogs out there because, in fact, only a small proportion are active."
