Higher Google Ranking
Google Image Search
As they say, Google works in mysterious ways!
However, sometimes, we’re lucky enough for Google to give us a hint about what type of content it likes or doesn’t.
When it comes to recipes, Google has made an incredible tool available for us. It’s called Structured Data Testing Tool.
With Structured Data Testing Tool, Google gives us hints about what it likes to see in a recipe.
If you recipe does not contain nutrition data, Google kindly warns you as you can see below.
Not to worry, though. Automatic Nutrition feature will generate the nutrition automatically for you. This will get you back in Google’s good graces.
Automatic Nutrition generates Nutrition Facts labels for your recipes.
Zip Recipes includes the recipe name in the Nutrition Fact label for people who may use Google Image Search looking for specific nutritional information.
Just another way Zip Recipes Automatic Nutrition helps you with your search ranking.
Your Readers Are Counting…Everything!

It Looks Great
Nutrition data can be included in your recipe card in different formats. The best way is as html, because Google can read this information best. For a preview, see our recipe at demo.ziprecipes.net. In this recipe we have added the nutrition data as a widget in the sidebar, and we have checked the option “hide nutrition label” in settings.
Other possible formats are: plain text, (this option, not generated but provided manually by you, is also included in the free version of ziprecipes), or as a label. These 2 formats are both still available, but as Google prefers the html version, and it has the added bonus that it looks better, we advise you to choose that.
This is what your html nutrition label will look like:
