Cloudy Thinking Stats: Not great, But Not Totally Embarassing
Marsha Walton reports on CNN.com that Netcraft says there are now 100 million web sites, with about 48 million considered “active.”
There are now 100 million Web sites with domain names and content on them,” said Netcraft’s Rich Miller.
“Within that, there are some that are busy and updated more often, and that represents the active sites, which are at about 47 or 48 million,” he said.
Those statistics are humbling for a small hobby blog. Here are a few stats for Cloudy Thinking:
Netcraft rank: 1,130,716 (out of all sites)
Technorati blog rank: 92,646
Alexa Traffic Rank: 4,794,416
David Sifry of Technorati publishes a report on the size and growth of blogs every few months.
July 31, 2006, Technorati tracked its 50 millionth blog
As of July 2006, about 175,000 new weblogs were created each day, which means that on average, there are more than 2 blogs created each second of each day.
… the total posting volume of the blogosphere continues to rise, showing about 1.6 Million postings per day, or about 18.6 posts per second. This is about double the volume of about a year ago.
Considering Cloudy Thinking blog stats, can you spell “insignificant?” Or maybe not. Being ranked approximately 1 million out of 48 million active sites isn’t terrible.
And being ranked 92,646 out of about 50 million blogs is better than being ranked at 50,000,000 right?
