Weblog Tools Market - Update February 2005
Interesting analysis of the market share of the popular blogging tools by Elise Bauer. She used Google to come up with the rough approximations and does aknowlege some caveats - it's probably a pretty good picture though, and some of you will find this most useful im sure.
Last August in An Overview of the Weblog Tools Market the concept of a Weblog Tools Use Index was introduced - the degree to which Google spidered pages associated with certain weblog tools, with the proposal that this number could be used as a proxy for the extent to which the tools are being used, and therefore give some indication of "share" of use. To reduce the confusion that that terminology caused, in this article the sum of the number of websites linking to a weblog tool URL and the number of websites containing the URL will simply be the factor used to determine comparative percentages, or "Google Share".
