How many times a recipe has been yummed on Yummly.

Pretty self explanatory with this photo. I will say…that if a recipe doesn’t include nutrition or time, no problem, just Yum it! The magic little Yummly elves will figure that all out according to the ingredients. Kind of amazing, right?!

Yummly is a tool that works great for bloggers as well. As a blogger/publisher, you can load all of your recipes to Yummly. Anyone on Yummly can search for your recipes and anyone on the web can save your recipes to Yummly. With Yummly they will only show the ingredients. To get the directions, a person will then have to click “show directions” which will in turn drive traffic to your blog. It’s a win win! Everyone gets a new recipe and bloggers will see more page views.
