The site's latest 'State of the Blogosphere' report shows blogging activity is doubling in size every 200 days, or about once every six and a half months. About 175,000 new weblogs were created every day in the last three years - the equivalent of two every second.

Viacom fancies coy Bebo, and with good reason

This week’s Bebo acquisition rumour comes in the shape of Viacom, the also-rans in the MySpace courtship battle. With Bebo in no rush to sell, we don’t anticipate this latest industry gossip will become a reality anytime soon.

It is plainly obvious that Big Media Companies are now scrambling all of their M&A jets in search of social networking sites to buy. This was previously something that seemed a little bit like bandwagon jumping a few months ago, but now there is a real reason for it.

Why asking 'why' is never a silly question

So I am now officially a blogger.  Indeed, I am an expert blogger.  At this point, I’d like to forget that ex- means ‘has been’ and ‘spurt’ is a ‘drip under pressure’.  But back to the point, once again my capacity for inaccurate prediction has struck gold. 

In my mind, blogging was always for other people – people with nothing better to do than fill the ether with their ramblings.  Not for people like me with valuable contributions to make to the digital world.  And yet here I am blogging away (on a late train home from work, in fact).

Although the information didn’t include users’ names, the move has attracted widespread criticism that the company had breached their privacy and left them open to ID theft.

Why isn’t ebookers top of Google for a search on ‘ebookers’?

While doing some project-based research last week I noticed that ebookers isn’t on the first page in Google for a search on its own brand name. Ouch.

The travel group is currently paying Google for an Adwords ad, to achieve the brand visibility it needs, but it is puzzling as to why an established dotcom with many thousands of inbound links is failing to capture the number one spot for its own brand.
