Note: there’s an updated listing here.

Top Sydney food blogs and top Melbourne food blogs combined.

By Thang Ngo

In July last year, noodlies, Sydney food blog began this project with the humble goal of ranking the top 30 Sydney food blogs by estimated traffic. Since then, the project has grown over ten-fold – last month, the list included 347 Sydney food blogs.

As of today, I will be adding 246 Melbourne food blogs, with the help of Ed from Tomato. So for the first time, there will be a ranking system which covers Sydney and Melbourne food blogs. Following from the inagural March Quarter 2014 rankings, I’ll be publishing updates each quarter: March (below), June, September and December.

Noodlies Top Australian Food Blogs Ranking

With the inclusion of Melbourne, we are  now closer to a national ranking system – Sydney and Melbourne cover around 68% of food blogs in Australia (estimated from food blogs registered on Urbanspoon). Subject to resources, noodlies intend to add one new capital city each quarter.

For now, please enjoy reading the 593 food blogs!

As at 31 March 2014

Congratulations to Lorraine from Not Quite Nigella for taking out the top spot in the noodlies Top Sydney & Melbourne Food Blogs, March 2014.
