Wow, 17 million blogs out there, a new blog every second, the blogosphere doubling every 5 months. Numbers from Technorati in this BBC news story about Yahoo putting blogs into its news search feeds ahead of mainstream media. Google are already indexing blogs (they own Blogger remember).

Google indexed my blog almost immediately and without me asking or even being listed in the Open Directory at that time. What’s really fun is to incorporate Google’s Adsense into the blog page, then manipulate the ads that appear via blog post titles. You can also manipulate how high in search returns your blog will appear. Sometimes I feel like I’m playin’ with Google’s mind!
I’ve not tried Adsense yet, but I’ve heard people comment how powerful the manipulation is.
Even without adsense (and no longer being a Google / Blogger blog) I’m constantly amazed how good and quick Goggle’s indexing of my own site is.
