    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has any idea how google looks on recipes? Many sites has same recipes (ingredients, directions etc...), so is it duplicate content? Is it ok to have on site same recipes like many other sites or ebooks?

    Thank you

    I'm also in this space.

    I found it's really hard to rank for the more popular and common recipes. But if you have some unique elements in your dish, and in the title you usually pick up some decent organic search.

    From reading many Pinterests journeys, I think you would be risking your Adsense accounts when using 100% scraped recipes. You might get away with it for a while, but in the long run, I don't think you are safe. Again, no personal experience.

    If you are talking about getting SE traffic, then I think it's still hit and miss - not so long ago, I've had tons of sites with non-unique content and some did quite well, some didn't get much SE traffic.

    I'm also wondering the same thing. I am currently running a recipe site but most of my traffic from social media. I know I'm missing out a lot by not using using adsense but is it really safe?

    i started with recipes niche since october 2013, i stopped a while than i back to work on it, all my traffic is 90% facebook + 10% pinterest , its hard to rank articles but you can use youtube, create a video with powerpoint or something,
    you can lost your adsense account in anytime if you're making a good money with copy/past my friends lost a lot of accounts with this method but we're still fighting :D

    Hmm, my traffic is 60% search engine and 40% social networks... why would I use my google acc? It is recipes, they are all the same and look same... they are on thousands of websites... ??? I think you didn't lost your account because you had recipe like 100 others...

    Rewrite it , duplicate content is not good for adsense.

    It's not really about duplicate content penalty as republishing another person's content without their express permission is considered copyright violation, even if you link back to the original. While there is no copyright on a specific set of ingredients, the written instructions need to be written in your own words. This should be enough to avoid potential copyright violations and duplicate content issues, if any could occur.

    I am not sure how will it effect but you can always make small changes like cutting the onions 1st and mashing the potatoes later <-- This is just an example by making 3-4 changes every recipe you can make it somewhat unique. use unique images Mrbeatsontoast explained a really simple way of making a image unique (on his journey thread)

    Ive been wondering about the very same thing.

    The particular recipes i will be using are like.......not changeable otherwise the recipe wouldn't work. So currently im just adding a bunch of other crap like facts about certain ingredients and the health benefits etc.

    Anything to give them uniqueness. While not taking to much time.



    Where is this thread buddy i cant locate it

    At least in Sweden no one owns recipes, perhaps diffrent in other countries. But how would it work, i use the same recipe beside one ingridient, have i stolen your recipe or was it my own from the begining?

    I think going for this niche worldwide is just waste of time, but if you live in a solid country I think going for national language is a good idea
