Pierate is a Top 100 UK Food Blog!
The Pierateers have finally cracked the Foodies100 "Top UK Food Blogs" list, after sharing our 500+ pie reviews with the world for the past five and a half years.
The Pierateers, who sail the 7 Cs of pie rating to rate pies up and down the country, have recently registered on the Foodies100 website and in May 2015 they had a meteoric rise of 318 places to joint 86th in the rankings! That not only makes them a top 100 UK food blog, but more importantly the official best UK pie blog!!!
Since we first entered the Foodies100 charts, the news has just got better and better for the Pierateers! The June 2015 rankings listed Pierate up 5 places to 81st in the rankings, with a further rise of 7 places to 74th place in July 2015!

While there is explanation of how the scores are created on their website, including Google links, Instagram followers and Klout score, we have to admit we're not quite sure why we have had such a sudden meteoric rise of 318 places into the top 100, but I'm sure our recent TV appearance on BBC One's hit show "Rip Off Britain" indirectly helped (although sadly "TV appearances" aren't on the list of factors, otherwise we might have been challenging for number 1 based on that! After all, you can't get much more influential than being advisers on the BBC in your chosen field!)
We eagerly await the results of the June rankings and hope we don't have a meteoric plummit back down the rankings again! But regardless of this we'll continue to bring you the pie reviews that have made us such a success, leading to over 300,000 views and highlights such as our TV debut on Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice (where our crocodile pie was rated by none other than Michel Roux Jnr!) and appearing on the BBC Sport website in their video on pies related to the Price of Football Survey.
