Taste.com.au is the most popular Food/Recipes Website among Australians aged 14+ years, with an average of nearly 1.2 million visitors (6.4%), in an average 4 week period in 2011, according to the latest Roy Morgan Single Source data.
In recent years Food/Recipes Websites have shown huge increases in visitor numbers. For example, in the five years since 2006, the number of Australians 14+ who visited at least one of these Food/Recipe Websites – Taste.com.au, Allrecipes.com, Ninemsn Food, Cuisine.com.au, Gourmet Traveller – in the last four weeks increased almost ten-fold, from 138,000 in 2006 to nearly 1.51 million (8.1%) in 2011.
This growth has largely been driven by the huge growth recorded by Taste.com.au, which more than tripled its visitors in the three years from 2008 to 2011, as shown in the following chart.
