My friends over at E.W. Scripps must be feeling a little pressure today — Yahoo! launched a new food vertical. It is, of course, a direct competitor with FoodNetwork.com.
A quick review: Yahoo!’s site is smart and well executed product. They’ve aggregated lots of content from several sources, have some original content and packaged it in an attractive design with good navigation (I love the “buzz” nav under the main tabs). They’ve also included restaurants — here’s the Bakersfield page.
Why hasn’t a local newspaper done a food vertical like this?
