Sifry's Alerts: State of the Blogosphere, April 2006 Part 1: On Blogosphere Growth

by 2 others (via)

Official Google Blog: A year of Google blogging

This is the 201st post to be published on the Google Blog in 2005. In closing out the first full year of our company-wide effort to share news and views, we thought you might be interested in a few factoids. Since we've had Google Analytics running on this blog since June, some of these numbers reflect only half a year. In that time, 4.3 million unique visitors have generated 8.7 million pageviews. Readers have come from all over the world, not just English-speaking countries: 53,001 visitors from Turkey have stopped by, for example; so have 155,691 from France, 29,614 from Thailand and 8,233 from Peru.

And that's just the beginning. Roughly 50,000 new blogs are launched every day.
