‘Tumblr’ poised to overtake ‘Blog’ on Google searches
Posted on August 8, 2012
Tumblr is on the cusp of doing something quite incredible. Google searches mentioning the service are poised to surpass searches for ‘blog’ by the end of the year, showing that the New York-based company has truly established itself as the Web’s most popular blogging platform.
I’m not entirely sure this should be a measure of whether it’s the world’s most popular blogging platform – in a previous blog post, I found that 16% of blogs are on Tumblr / Posterous / TypePad.
Could it be that those 16% are actually more popular than the 43% of blogs that are on WordPress though?
