Only today did I realize that if you google “russian food blog”, Food Perestroika doesn’t appear in the first 10 pages (I didn’t look beyond that). Moreover, all of the blogs on the first result page, though sometimes quite interesting, only post a handful of articles a year, when they haven’t stopped all together. Don’t I deserve my 15 minutes of fame, too?
Sure, neither my blog title nor my tagline explicitly use the words “Russian”, “food” or “blog”. It’s also true that this is not only a Russian food blog, in that I write many posts that talk about other topics (such as food-serving establishments and travel) and other countries (such as Hungary, Ukraine, Georgia, and Azerbaijan, all of which are only so far from Russia). I guess I’m being too subtle for the world’s foremost search engine, and I apologize.
So Mr Google, please take note. I’m going to spell it out for you: this is a Russian food blog.
It is a blog that talks about Russian food. A food blog, with an emphasis on Russia. A blog with posts on Russia and food, or if you prefer, on food and Russia. A blog that looks at Russia through the prism of food. Russian food, aka the food of the Russia, is discussed here, using blogging as a medium. Russian. Food. Blog.
And if this is not enough, here are some posts to convince you:
- Blini and Oladi, Russian Pancakes
- Salad Olivier
- Kurnik, Russian Chicken Pot Pie
- Salmon Coulibiac
- Sturgeon Astrakhan
- Tvorog, Russian Fromage Blanc
- Baked Paskha
- Apple, Vodka and Birch Syrup Babka with Cranberry Mors Sorbet
- Mors, Russian Berry Cocktail
Wondering if you can help me. My blog got hacked and deleted a couple of weeks ago, I have started a new one but in the process have lost all my old followers, quite a significant number of whom were from Russia and Ukraine. I’m wondering if there’s a site I can post my details on to try and reach them again and get them back to my blog.
I’d appreciate any advice.
Not sure if this helps, but here you go. People can click on your nickname to get to your site.
And one of my favorite Russian Food Blogs out there :-)! Shame on you, Google!
Haha, Google’s finally caught up and put me in the top 10 results. It’s amazing what you can do with just one low-tech blog post.
Hahahaha! Great idea using this post, this is how we found the blog!
Hi! At the risk of sounding spammy, I’d love to exchange site links with you because I thought our writing was fairly related. It’s a travel site of sorts, focusing mostly on Asia. You can check out my Russian cuisine post for an idea of what we do.
Hope to hear from you soon. Cheers.
Oh, seriously! You just boosted your SEO in a major way! I should do this too 🙂
Your comment probably boosted your SEO already…
Hi, dear! I was searching for Russian food blogs and your blog appeared on the first page of Google. Interesting blog!
This is exactly what I was looking for! Spasiba – and yeah, Mr. Google was naughty about that, because the first 10 blogs exactly (still!) showed what you said: 3-4 recipes in 20 years….*zzzz*, but patience brings roses, I didn`t give up and landed here, jippie…. 🙂
