Here are a couple of interesting info graphics showing 40 different things that happen every minute. I found these by following Steven Joyce (@LSHSteve) of Local Search Heroes in Penticton, BC. I’m not sure of the source of the information that was used to create the info graphics, but the numbers seem accurate to me based on other things I’ve read, at least at a quick glance.
Every 60 seconds there are:
- 700,000 searches on Google
- >1,500 blog posts published
- 25 hours of video uploaded to YouTube
- >70 new domains registered
- almost 100,000 tweets and >320 new twitter accounts created
Every 60 seconds! They also say that over 1 billion new web pages are created each day.
The World Wide Web is one of the fastest growing and fastest changing things on the planet. Now you can start to appreciate why SEO is an on-going effort rather than just a one-time project. It’s a foot race that never stops. If you are ahead, you might be tempted to stop and rest for a while. But depending on how fast your competition is running, you won’t be ahead for ever.
