Press release in German / Google’s English translation


  1. 91% of the blog readers expect a fast and appropriate reaction to questions and comments in enterprise blogs.
  2. 90% think it’s important to make a clear difference between commercial and non-commercial content.
  3. Of the blog readers, 54% form their opinions about products/companies on the basis of blogs.
  4. 51% of the blog readers visit product and/or corporate sites as a results of reading blogs.
  5. 58% of the blog readers, read them to find news and information they can’t find otherwise.
  6. 57% of them are interested in the personal opinions of the authors, but only 43% are interested in the discussions.

If these results are correct, it’s one of the strongest cases for corporate blogs I’ve seen. What an opportunity to have 57% percent of your readers actually interested in your personal opinion, just to mention one detail.

Disclaimer: I haven’t studied German for many years… Should I have misunderstood something in the mix of German and Google English, please correct me. Thanks CyberWriter for the link!
