I'm a food blogger and am curious about my recipes on your Trending Recipes web page. What is it?
It is called Trending Recipes because it is a list of websites our users are currently visiting (trending). We will never share your complete recipe on our website. Instead we provide a link to your website for people to use to view the entire recipe. An algorithm reads the html of the source web page to show only the recipe title, photo, and ingredients to show a sample of the recipe which of course requires the person to go to your website to view the entire recipe. This is very similar to Google Recipes:
Trending Recipes is nothing more than a list of links to recipes that our users have visited on other websites. Click on any recipe there. Notice the page that loads only shows part of the recipe. Notice in order to view the entire recipe you MUST click on the link to the source website that says View the Full Recipe at [name of website].
Usually when bloggers find we are actually directing people to their website, they don't mind and actually appreciate the traffic being sent their way. However, if you would like us to remove links to your web pages we would certainly be happy to do that. Please contact us in MasterCook Support and give us your website address, so we can take care of it for you.
