    TopRank Marketing drives results with content, influencer, SEO & social media marketing.

    Dave Sifry has posted his quarterly State of the Blogosphere with these results including the observation that technology product launches attract a significant amount of interest:

    • Technorati now tracks over 35.3 Million blogs
    • The blogosphere is doubling in size every 6 months
    • It is now over 60 times bigger than it was 3 years ago
    • On average, a new weblog is created every second of every day
    • 19.4 million bloggers (55%) are still posting 3 months after their blogs are created
    • Technorati tracks about 1.2 Million new blog posts each day, about 50,000 per hour

    Here are previous reports: February 2006, July 2005, March 2005, October 2004.

    Still think blogs are a “passing phase”? Blog marketing is no place for a “herd mentality”, but it’s nothing to procrastinate over either.
