How does Everyrecipe.co.za work?
Everyrecipe.co.za adds recipes from major food sites in South Africa, as well as recipes from food bloggers who choose to sign up and add their recipes to our index, which we retrieve through RSS feeds. A visitor to Everyrecipe.co.za searches for the recipe they are looking for and are able to find results from major food sites as well as blogs in the search results. They then click through to the food site or blog to read the complete recipe. In other words, Everyrecipe.co.za is a specialised search engine for recipes.
Why should I join Everyrecipe.co.za with my food blog?
Everyrecipe.co.za is one more way for you to receive relevant traffic to your blog. Many of our users go straight to Everyrecipe.co.za to browse recipes from food sites and blogs. We deliver thousands of visitors each day to food bloggers and sites.
What is this widget that you want me to add to my blog?
The member widget contains html which makes it possible for us to measure your blog's traffic for our food blog top. It's not a requirement that you add the widget for us to index your recipes. However, it needs to be added if you want your blog to show on the blog top list. The widget also contains a link to Everyrecipe.co.za, so that your visitors can find the origin of the badge.
If I add my blog, will you use my content?
Yes, to some degree we have to. To be able to properly show your relevant recipes in the search results, we use parts of your recipe title, a small part of the main content and the first image you have used to accompany it. All this information we get from your blog's RSS feed and we then link directly to your post with the recipe. We never use your full content and in order to read your full recipe the user has to visit your blog.
If I notice that my blog recipes are on your site without my consent, what should I do?
If you were to discover any material that is yours and which has been used by others without your permission, we refer to the publisher of the website or blog which contains your material. At myTaste, we only link to other people's recipes and cannot take legal responsibility for materials published on external websites. In order to get in touch with the people responsible for publishing your material without permission, we advice you to click on "View Recipe" on myTaste's website and locate the contact information on the website it leads you to (i.e. the website that has published your material).
If I join Everyrecipe.co.za with my food blog, can I choose to leave the site later?
Yes, of course. All you have to do is email us on info@ everyrecipe.co.za and let us know that you no longer wish to have your recipes in our index.
Why can’t I see all my recipes on your site?
We can only index those recipes that are listed in your RSS feed. If you want us to index more of your posts, you need to change the configuration to your feed so that it contains more content. Once this is done, we can start indexing more, or all, of your recipes.
