A recent Mashable article: Recipe Search Engine Gives Any Recipe a Nutrition Label for a fairly new site called Foodily: http://foodily.com/ may be of interest to Bed and Breakfasts.
From Mashable: “You could plug each ingredient into the USDA’s national nutrient database, do some conversion equations to reflect the amount of each ingredient called for, add up the sugar, fat and other health factors, and then compare the results.But startup recipe search engine Foodily is now offering to do this for you — automatically”
Now many B&Bs are putting their recipes on their blogs.
If you look at http://foodily.com/r/aWrO9pMP1, You will notice there is a hotlink to the originating blog/site of the recipe, as well as a link back near the top of the page, plus a Facebook plugin, so people can comment on the recipe and it will post to their Facebook wall, with a link back to the foodily page.
One of the reasons I like this setup is Foodily is NOT including the recipe preparation, so if someone wants to try the recipe, they need to visit the actual blog post it was listed on.
So not only do you have a photo of your breakfast item, a recipe that basically forces the viewer to visit your blog for more information, but two hotlinks TO your blog, as well some nutritional information compiled for free, and the Facebook tie in for further promotion for your B&B.
If you’d like to get your blog or site indexed by Foodily, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org
A note from Shannon Rubado, the Community Manager at Foodily.com, was nice enough to let me know that their goal is to have all sources available in the Foodily index, but that will take some time. Right now, they have a queue of sites to be added as sources, so send her your links to get indexed and they will happily add them to the queue.
