Yummly is my all-time go-to recipe source, and you’ll be able to see that when you conduct a Google search for a recipe…nine times out of ten, Yummly’s recipes are on the first, second or third spot on the first page of google! That’s because Yummly has over 15 million unique monthly users and several bloggers have reported Yummly surpassing Pinterest as their top traffic referrer. Whaaaaat?!

It’s also a breeze to submit your recipes through Yummly. You won’t need to manually submit recipes on and hope for approval for your submission. It’s just like Pinterest where anyone can add recipes and Yummly user(s) can discover, favorite, and become popular enough for to feature!!! Ta-da! MORE TRAFFIC!
