David Sifry of Technorati at O’Reilly Web 2.0 Expo

David Sifry of Technorati did a presentation on some of their blog stats today at Web 2.0. He came up with a few interesting tidbits:

  • 22% of the top 100 most-linked sites are blogs (this is interesting when you consider it in relation to mainstream media).
  • The single largest posting language is currently Japanese. 37% of all public posts use Japanese as a posting language (he noted that they do undercount French, Korean & Chinese)..
  • A newcomer of the top ten posting languages is Farsi (which is interesting if you assume that these bloggers are in Iran).
  • Blogs are getting less active. In May of 2006, 36% of all of Technorati’s tracked blogs were “active.” In March of 2007, 21% of all of their tracked blogs were “active.”
