Web Sites on the Internet

A January survey estimates that there were last month 155,583,825 web sites on the internet. This number is really not the reality, as many sites containing thousands of users, may be listed as only one site.  

What I found interesting was that growth had slowed from 5.4 million new sites in December to just 354,000 new sites in January. Only time will tell if all the negative news and econmic uncertainty is effecting web growth Whether this is a fluke or the start of a longer term trend, the web grew by fifty million sites in 2007 which is still a relatively healthy increase by any measure.
