100 Million Websites

100 Million Websites (Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox): "Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox, November 6, 2006:
100 Million Websites

The early Web's explosive growth rate has slowed, but even the mature Web is still expanding and recently crossed the 100 M websites mark.

Netcraft's latest Web survey found 101,435,253 websites in November 2006. Not all of these sites are live: some are 'parked' domains, while others are abandoned weblogs that haven't been updated in ages. But even if only half the sites are maintained, there are still more than 100 M sites that people pay to keep running.

Surpassing 100 M is a big milestone, and represents immense growth since the Web's founding 15 years ago.

Jakob Nielsen will discuss the implications of the Web's numerous sites and changing growth rates in further detail in a full-day seminar on Fundamental Guidelines for Web Usability at the User Experience 2006 conference in London on Saturday.
