The Web has just hit a huge milestone - 100 million web sites!
There were just 18,000 Web sites when Netcraft, based in Bath, England, began keeping track in August of 1995. It took until May of 2004 to reach the 50 million milestone; then only 30 more months to hit 100 million, late in the month of October 2006.
Bloggers, small businesses, and simplicity have combined to create the dramatic growth of sites, much of it just in the past two years.
Thanks Blogger.com, MSN Spaces and Apple's iWeb!
And on to 200 million sites by 2010!
