Over 60 Million Blogs Worldwide
Posted on May 30, 2005
By aggregating data from several sources The Blog Herald has estimated the current number of blogs worldwide to be over 60 million and climbing. This estimate includes an amazing 10 million blogs from Microsoft who claim to be adding 100,000 blogs daily to their MSN Spaces service. The Blog Herald said blogs from AOL and Yahoo 360 were not included because these companies have not yet provided data about how many blogs have been launched using their services. Social networking services like Friendster and MySpace.com also host numerous blogs and these do not appear to be included in the count so the actual number of blogs in the world is probably much larger than 60 million.
