Hello! I went through and added tags to all of my posts. I went to check today and Google console is stating that they are all unable to be indexed, is that right? Or normal? I

Hi Elizabeth,

When you're not pinning, you're spamming! LOL

Try cooking .

Hahahahaha!
Maxine

Lol!!! Good way to put that ...yes I should stick to the cooking hugs Maxine!!

I am so impressed with you, Elizabeth.

My thought arel leaning towards doing something with healthy recipes linking out o you as an authority.

So many ideas and not enough hands and skill to get it off the ground.

Let's keep in touch.

Maxine

Thank you Maxine! You are so sweet :)

Yes lets keep in touch, I would love that!

No problem Elizabeth.

Are you using a lot of tags? I'm just wondering if Google is seeing your tags as being "spammy". Read this link: Hope this helps.

Yvette

Thank you for responding. I have about 6 on each because I read you need to keep it under 15 but they are the same tags, a couple variations.

I just looked at a video and this person said they only use about one or two and in some, none at all, or others three or four. He also mentioned you shouldn't be too specific. I'm wondering if perhaps you have too many?

You are probably right! Thank you for the help and the videos. I really appreciate it and I will go fix. Thanks again 😁

You're welcome. I hope the information helps. Please contact me to let me know how it all worked out, okay?

I will thank you!

I just removed all my tags except for on the ones that I did product reviews, and only have one tag on those three. I resubmitted to Google and we will see what happens. Thank you so much again for your help!

Ok. Keep me posted! Wishing it all goes well for you this time around :)

Haha thanks me too! I keep checking but Console is still running its "analysis". Funny I was just thinking how I needed to swing back and update you as soon as I know! LOL Great minds I guess :)

Authoring & Writing Content

I am creating a "Honored Chef's" page on my recipe site. How do I provide proper credit for a recipe from someone else's site? Without creating duplicate content or stealing of

Hi Elizabeth,
This question has pinned you LOL
Hahahaha!
I would blog about it in a post and give the chef credit for his or her recipe.

Maxine

LOL yes Maxine!! LOL Thank you for responding my friend!

You're most welcome Elizabeth

Maxine

Give Credit where due. You should be fine. I'd even contact the owner of the recipe and let them know that you have shared their content and provided credit.

They can either tell you to remove it or you might just create a mutual relationship where they are grateful for your share.

Thank you very much for responding to my question!

I ran into this situation a while back, although I cannot offer legal advice. The ingredients of a recipe are not copyrighted, however the body of the recipe itself is. Also, the post itself could also be considered copyrighted work.

You'll see many people use the phrase "derived from" but this typically means that you add something of your own to it. If you copy it verbatim then it cannot really be a derivation.

By far, your best bet is to ask the person if it's okay to use it with the understanding that you'll give proper credit. Just make sure he or she truly has the copyright, which isn't guaranteed even if they claim it's true.

Best Regards,
Jim

Thank you Jim! Yes, I have received proper approval from them. I definitely don't want to cross any lines here, just want to help support my fellow "chefs"! Thank you for the help!

I think as long as you change the content enough you won't get duplicate content.

You can also use a reference like one that would be placed in wikipedia or a college paper to give credit to the original author.

Ok, thank you so much Glen. I appreciate you taking the time to help me!

My Pleasure Elizabeth!

Keyword, Niche and Market Research

Hello! When doing research for my latest recipe, I am using the word Crock-Pot in my title. I found a great title to use. My question is, the word Crock-Pot is correct, but in

One thing to remember is people will spell things differently as it maybe mistyped or they may not be good at spelling.

When I enter my keywords on a post I add miss-spellings to cover for those who have spelt the word wrong and also mid typed it.

I would therefore include:

Crockpot
Crock pot
Crock-pot
Crocpot
Crock pot

Etc.

I always think it’s better to have more than less keywords.

I do this as I’m always mid typing phrases when I’m looking !!

As long as when you Google Crock-Pot and it doesn't say "Showing Results for Crockpot - See Results for Crock-Pot" or something along these lines you're good.

Sometimes websites will target misspelled keywords to try to game the system, but Google does a good job of avoiding this by just immediately showing you the results as if you spelled the word correctly.

As long as Google doesn't show it as misspelled and showing other results you shouldn't have any problems. Just so you know I'd 100% Google Crockpot

Thank you Brok! I appreciate the feedback on that.

Google actually makes allowances for things like that. They know that people have variations for the same word, kind of like WalMart and Wal-mart. Just don't spell it krokpot!

LOL - will do! Thank you :) I'm still laughing girl....LOL

Hey Elizabeth,You have a little problem. Sometimes the language that we use in food business doesn't make sense to the normal population

So do you think I should use crockpot? Or be proper and use Crock-Pot? I want to make sure that everyone can locate my recipes.

Oh and thank you for responding!!

Elizabeth, I looked at Jaaxy. There are listings for crock pot and crockpot. I didn't see crock- pot.

Just trying to help!

Maxine

Thank you Maxine! I hope you are feeling alright my dear! I want to make sure that people will be able to find me when they search for crockpot....even though the actual written word on the side is Crock-Pot. That is why I was a little worried but wanted to make it proper. Thank you for commenting and take care!

So nice of you to ask about my health.

All is awesome.

Just today I saw a seemingly delicious Crockpot Potato recipe. They used "crockpot " I don't think you will have a problem. Let me in on your recipe so that I can pin it in my board for recipes or healthy recipes

Girlfriend, you're doing great. You niche is a good one. " The way to a man's heart is through his stomach "

Hahahahaha!

Maxine

Thank you so much Maxine! LOL so I have heard (wink wink) I will PM you my recipe and I am glad you are doing well my dear.

hi Elizabeth -- yes correct spelling and grammar counts ... well, according to seo ...

generally, i always try to remember to run my texts through the spell/grammar checker and that helps me to determine whether i want to keep the spelling as it is or change it ...

i did a mini-test -- and here are the results: it looks like with the space -- it questions the word; it doesn't appear to like a 0 space; whereas, with a hyphen it passes go ...

so that's it from me on this .... it really comes down to your choice of words as the author ...

.... happy choosing! ... 😊

Thank you for this response, I definitely want to title it properly due to it being a name. Thank you for that information. Have a great day!

you're most welcome! ... cheerio .. 😊

SEO is optimizing your post to get the most amount of readers. Large search engines like Bing, Yahoo and Google want to give their users the best results based on the keywords they typed in.

If Crockpot is used more than Crock-Pot you may want to change it, unless your post gets ranked for the keyword Crock-Pot in which case you could get readers you wouldn't necessarily get if you had Crockpot as your keyword.

It mostly comes down to which keyword you are targeting, how close you want to stay to the original name of a product and how much competition there is within your niche. Keep creating reviews and growing your audience, don't focus too much on making one post great but instead creating a lot of great posts. As you create more and more you will adopt your own methods. There is no one right way, just need to find your way! :)

Hope this helps!

Thank you Kenny, I appreciate you taking the time to respond. I have been using the correct spelling so far on all my recipes "Crock-Pot" but when i was searching this time round, it appeared that there were more people using the word "crockpot". So I was thinking...errr maybe I should change it. But I will keep the correct way as it is proper and you are right, maybe I will get other readers as well. Thanks for the input and help.

That is a good question!
I would think you wouldn't have any issues. But I am not an expert.
I wish you the best on this.

Thank you!

Hello! I created a post that I have done additional research on and I found a better word for search results in Google. If I change the title of the post, will that impact anyt

Elizabeth,

I sent you a PM on this. Just so everyone else can see, it's a good practice to go back to old posts that aren't performing well and make tweaks to keywords in title/content, internal links, etc.

The easiest way to do it is to keep the URL the same to avoid any errors but it's completely fine to make changes to old content that's not doing great on search engines.

Brok

Ok, thanks Brok I appreciate that! I was concerned about changing the URL.

It will but that's for your good. I usually do that especially when my post is not yet indexed. But you can do it too even it's indexed. However, don't forget to change every important thing like permalink, keyword, and description.

Yes it will impact negatively and I would not do this. The reason is that you will be sending mixed signals to Google about your targetted keyword, one in the title and another different in the url. So you make your case weaker instead of stronger.

Very good information! Thank you for the explanation and I am very glad I asked before doing it :D Appreciate your time!

Good, I think you can, you are already Index. Just add in do not remove anything, It just a thought

Awesome, I will try that. Thank you!

You are Very Welcome Have a Super Night

You as well my friend!
