Blogosphere threatened by Google downtime

Google's Blogger.com has been offline this year more than any of the top 20 most popular websites.
The news is sure to generate panic among the most prolific bloggers, who like to document their most mundane minute-by-minute cat updates and trumpet them to a global audience.
The top 20 is based on Alexa ratings, which should be be taken with a large pinch of salt, but represent a decent sample of the most visited web destinations.
In fact, Blogger was down for more than twice as long as any other top 20 site. Next on the downtime wall of shame was another Google property, YouTube, with eight hours and 44 minutes of invisibility.
Honourable mention goes to the techies at Yahoo.com, who as well as sitting at number one in the Alexa stats, were the only team in the top 20 to keep their page up and running without any interruptions.
The full downtime rundown is here. ®
