First survey on South African bloggers released
The first survey on South African bloggers was released this week. An American survey was also released and there are some interesting comparisions.
- 75 % of American bloggers have a college degree
- 75 % of South African bloggers have a higher than matric qualification.
- While more bloggers are male in America, slightly more are female in South Africa.
- In America more than half the bloggers earn more than $ 75 000 per annum
- In South Africa 43 % earn more than R 20 000 per month.
- 59 % of American bloggers have been blogging for more than two years.
- 40 % of South African bloggers have been blogging for more than two years.
- 25 % of Americans spend more than 10 hours a week on their blog
- 10 % of South Africans spend more than 10 hours a week on their blog.
- Over half of the top bloggers according to the
Technorati Authority post five or more times a day.
- In South Africa just over 20 % of bloggers post six or more times A WEEK.
- In America a staggering 50 % of active blogs receive more than a 1000 monthy visitors, while in South Africa, 35 % get less than 100 visitors a month and 25 % get less than 500 visitors a month.
- The reasons behind why American bloggers receive more traffic are probably that the South African blogging community is small compared to America and does not receive as much exposure.
