Ask Jeevestoday announced that Bloglines has reached a new milestone: 500 million blog and news feed articles are now stored in the service’s database.
Between January and June of this year, the size of the Bloglines index doubled. And each day Bloglines adds 2 million to 2.7 million new blog and news feed articles to the database, drawn from a diverse range of sources in many languages.
“The daily growth of blog and news feed articles is the most accurate measure of the blogosphere’s size and vitality,” said Mark Fletcher, founder and now general manager of Bloglines at Ask Jeeves. “Bloglines has the largest database of blog and feed articles, the fastest growing index of dynamic web content, and the broadest set of integrated features – making us the strongest blog resource on the Internet.”
