Top Search Terms Last Week
The fastest-growing week over week search term driving traffic to the site last week was bacon-wrapped smokies. Other fast growing search terms driving traffic to Allrecipes.com included chicken wing dip, 7 layer dip, 7 layer taco dip, and buffalo wing recipe. Impossible to separate football fans from their dips!
The fastest growing internal search terms week over week followed a similar pattern and included super bowl, seven layer dip, 7 layer dip, and buffalo chicken dip.
When reviewing the week’s starring videos, home cooks also watched those with a Super Bowl connection. Chef John's Baked Crab and Artichoke Dip served in a bread bowl topped the charts as the most popular new video based on video page views per day during the week. Other top video performers included:
- The Best Meatballs was the top performer for overall video page views
