Top 500 cooking blogs in 2012

Here is Cellarer’s guide to the most popular cooking blogs. The contest includes all personal sites but the table shows only the 500 ‘best’ — ‘best’ is evaluated with public website metrics.

Herebelow is an overview of the results.

A comprehensive pool of candidates

The number of websites that I retrieve metrics for is a gigantic 950.

The multitude against the big

I chose to exclude magazines, that is sites that are written by many contributors. Press and firms have their means of getting known. I’d rather promote unique voices (blogs). So the top food blogs is a convenient tool for getting to know prominent culinary authors. Please tell me if you spot an item in the list that would have more than 2 contributors.

How to participate

Websites are automatically included in the contest as soon as I learn of their existence. To be eligible to the next issue of the best recipe blogs, the below conditions must be met:

  1. The main topic should be cooking.
  2. The articles must be written by no more than two persons (not a team) — so as to screen firms.

You can follow the ranking evolution by subscribing to the feed on websites blog RSS.

How to discover cooking blog posts
