Your goals are totally realistic and when you achieve the first one, it will be just a matter of scaling to reach the second one. The Internet works wonderful when you have your formula for success down which you are going to be getting from the training here at WA.

Once you get this formula down the sky is truly the limit Cheryl! I look forward to working with you and seeing you make your goals a reality. :)

Welcome to The Wealthy Affiliate; all the tools and everything you need is here to succeed; if you want? You can skip ahead and come back? I am putting a LOT of stuff.

First; there is a Caring Community here; that can answer just about any question you have about money and or success. You can ask The Community just about any question.

Next; there is Kyle and Carson; they are Super Pros; if for some reason? And I can't really think of one. But, if for some reason: The Caring Community can't answer? Kyle and Carson can. Just type Kyle into the search engine here on The Wealthy Affiliate and go from there. Then do Carson after.

Not only that; but if you have problems with your site; which are Technical Problems; yes; you can ask Kyle and Carson; but there is also Site Support; they are in the bottom in Websites; if you are having problems with your site; you can definitely ask Site Support.

But, and this may seem like too much; but it is true; as I said; all the tools and everything you need is here to succeed; I am just pointing them out to you. There is the search engine here on The Wealthy Affiliate too; if you want to search for anything; you can.

I think I said more than enough; but I just wanted you to know that all the tools you need to succeed are here. And you may not believe this? But there is more.

There is training here on The Wealthy Affiliate; the training is easy and fun; and there are two programs. You might want to take one; take a pause and then take the other. The training is Easy and Fun; and if you have any questions? Feel free to ask.

Now; this may seem like a bit much; but these are all the tools here at The Wealthy Affiliate to help you succeed. And I haven't even mentioned; you can make a Site and sell Products on it. That is here too. I hope this did not seem too much; but I wanted to tell you truthfully all the advantages you have here at The Wealthy Affiliate and these are all true.

Good morning! Can I get good rankings and traffic if my site is all about recipes? I can write intros using the right keywords but the site would really be recipes and step-by-step articles?

I'm new and not sure it that is the direction I should go.

Thanks!

You can yes, there are lots of members here who have a recipe website. You will want to use Recipe Schema for each post, to tell the search engines etc that they are recipes. You can either add this schema manually per post, or use a recipe schema plugin or schema that comes with your SEO plugin, such as Rank Math.

Absolutely, Cheryl.

Rankings and traffic are not based on your niche.

Ranking well is achieved by choosing the right keywords and creating great content for that keyword. Use only one keyword per post.

Have a look at this important webinar. Paul

I have a recipe site and it is doing fairly well, I have many posts that rank #1 and am getting over 100 hits a day for a site that is under a year old.

Thanks for the tip!

I found wprecipe plugin which allows me to create my recipes. Only problem is that the recipes are inserted into the post using shortcodes. If that going to hurt my seo? Here is an example:

That's great Gordon! Do you use a plugin to post the recipes or do you type them directly into the page? I'm a bit confused as to how this works because I installed wprecipe and it uses shortcodes to insert the recipes into pages. I think that will create a problem with SEO.

Shortcodes don't affect SEO, no :-)

I should have asked the question in a different way. If I write a short description of the project and then insert the short code does google see just that short description on the page and ignore it because it's only a few words?
Reply
ChrystopherJ Premium Plus
Google won't ignore it, it will see the description and the recipe in full, however, you do want to get as much relevant info in there as possible. I would do a short description, then the recipe and then a longer description.

I use WP Recipe Maker, there is a free version but I use the pro version, its the most popular recipe plugin and takes care of seo metadata, I also use Elementor as a page builder that has a widget for inserting recipes from WP recipe maker. If you would like to have a look at WPRM working go to my profile and look at my website
