Here are some fun search engine and blogging statistics I pulled up. I like doing this about once a year to see what is going on in the search space to see if there are any trends I’m missing. Plus, it’s just really interesting data to look at. Most comes from comscore, hitwise, and technorati.

There are 120,000 new blogs being created every day
