Internet Shrinks: Web Loses 1.2M Sites « Data Center Knowledge

Hmm…

The Internet shrunk by 1.2 million web sites last month to 185.5 million sites, the largest monthly loss since the dot-com bust in 2003, according to new data from Netcraft. The results are a sharp departure from a long-running growth trend that has seen the Netcraft survey add between 1 million and 4 million sites per month. 

The decline was driven by large losses at blogging platforms operated by Microsoft and Google. Microsoft saw a loss of more than 2 million blogs hosted on IIS (the majority likely at Microsoft Spaces) while Google saw a drop of more than 800,000 sites using its GFE server, which supports Blogger.
