Reach Out To Our Audience

Our first award-winning site launched in 1994, we were partners with America Online from 1995-2002, and we're still the longest-running food ezine on the Web. Our site received over 360,000 unique visitors in January 2011 (source: Google Analytics and MINT), over 17 million unique visitors since 2007, and our audience is predominantly female.

The globalgourmet.com tier rank on Quantcast ranged from 4,130 to 11,602 over the past year (Currently US Rank of 10,982). The Google Page Rank for the main Global Gourmet home page has ranged between 3 and 7 (10 is highest) over the past two years. DomainTools.com gives our site an SEO Score of 94% and, in November 2010, comScore.com ranked us #95 for key measures (traffic and reach) out of the top 400 food sites they track, using comScore's new Unified methodology which combines audience direct measurement with site tracking beacons.

We offer banners of various sizes, text links for traffic, plus placements on the main page, run-of-site, or just 2nd tier pages (including over 10,000 pages ranked and indexed by search engines—see Recent Searches for examples of indexed pages).

Our 2010-2011 advertisers have included General Mills (including Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, Yoplait and other subsidiaries), Jaguar, Buick, Best Foods, Buitoni, Oxo, MasterCard, Arkansas Department of Parks & Tourism, and many others.

Third-party companies like URLtrends collect this same data from the same external sources we do (such as Yahoo, Alexa, and Google). They collect this data tens of thousands of times a day—these sources have limits to what they will provide, so when checking sites in "live" mode, the data sometimes fails to come through and may affect rankings.



Traffic data varies depending on the source. Each counter program tallies data differently and most use Javascript so if a vistor turns off Javascript, they may not be counted. Some counters do not record data on some older pages (from 1996 to 1998) because the page templates are too old and do not include the counter scripts. Though they use Javascript, the Google Analytics stats appear to be the most accurate because they filter most errors, bots and other junk traffic.

Mint Stats

MINT is a "live" PHP-based internal statistics program. We started using MINT in late February 2007. Like Google and Quantcast, MINT does not count bots and other extraneous hits that many other statistics programs count; those extra hits can artificially inflate a site's stats.
