Saving Recipes to Pinterest, Yummly and BigOven

In order to get the most traffic, you need to spread your recipes far and wide.

Some websites that have garnered a reputation for being recipe hubs are Pinterest, BigOven and Yummly. They each have large communities of people looking for recipes and can be large source of traffic.

In order to appear on these websites, someone has to add your recipes on them. The more people adding your recipes, the more popular your recipes will be and the more visitors they will generate to your website.
