State of the Blogsphere Oct 2005

Blogs continue to spread like wild fire and the number of bloggers is on track to double every 5 months which is pretty amazing considering that Technorati is tracking 19.6 million blogs. Sadly though they are seeing about 6% of those being created for the pure purpose of spam. China is leading the charge in growth rate of foreign blogs. Lots of great data in the report and has links to the data used to build the statistics that is reported. [David Sifry]
