If you run a cooking blog you're familiar with the major challenges that every publisher faces today: there're many great publishers out there. In fact, there's a lot of them. While good and frequently updated content is key to creating and growing a loyal reader base, it is not enough in today's marketplace.
We designed our service for recipe publishers ShopGlider Connect
to make your site to stand out and to bring value to you and your readers. ShopGlider Connect
is a service that allows recipe publishers to publish any recipe as a reusable shopping list.
for a ShopGlider publisher account to:
» Create and publish your recipes
All you have to do is enter the ingredients, directions and cooking times. We'll take care of the rest - our automatic recipe generator will give you the HTML code fully compliant with Google hRecipe format for inclusion on your blog / website.
» Increase visitor loyalty
When your readers add recipes from your site to their ShopGlider Recipe Book they also add a link to the original recipe post on your site. Every time they want details that go beyond ingredients and simple instructions (such as step-by-step photos or cooking considerations) they go back to your blog, where they can discover your new recipes. This is not the case when users simply print a full recipe from your site.
» Provide more value to your readers
Once added to the personal ShopGlider Cook Book, your recipe becomes a shopping list that your readers can use any time when they go shopping. With a single click they can add all ingredients to their store trip, print or email it, and be on their way to the store. It saves time to your readers, which gives them more reasons to come back to your site.
» Save time on recipe management
With ShopGlider you can store, manage and easily update your recipes online, while using your own site/blog as the main marketing vehicle. ShopGlider provides simple intuitive recipe building form that does all the formatting for you and recognizes all commonly used measurement units. Unlike a typical blog post where ingredients/directions blend with the rest of the content, ShopGlider's recipe entries are built for simple editing and maintenance.
