2 billion hCards
According to Yahoo! Search Monkey, there are now over 2 billion hCards on the web:
This is perhaps due to a few fairly large recent deployments:
- BrightKite.com - all venues and user profiles have hCard (millions)
- Gravatar - all profiles now have hCards (millions) - used on WordPress.com etc.
Some additional recent news:
- microformats has 94% marketshare compared to alternatives (e.g. RDFa) according to Google (announced at the Semantic Technology conference)
