recipe not showing up - ongoing

  • eyecook 5 years ago
    Hi there!
    I have a recipe for Hemp Seed Pesto and no matter what I do - it's not showing up in search terms. I have done all the things one would think would make it be found - like making sure the keywords are there - no avail. Sadly there is no tech support .... :-(
    Also - when you look at the "ingredients" part of the recipe - there are quite a few that don't show up highlighted - which I think may be the issue. If that's the case - that kinda stinks because there is no way I know of highlighting them, so my Deeeeelicious recipe goes undiscovered.

    That is strange. When you search for "hemp" two other recipes come up, but not yours! Weird. Hopefully someone will address this for you.

    I was just playing around to search for it and I can get it to come up if I type in Pesto Twist in the search bar. Not a whole lot of help, but still......:)

    Go to your profile. Click the recipes tab. Click the little magnifying glass to search. Type in Pesto. It comes right up. I forget the exact explanation, but, Kristopher (the site owner) explained this a long long time ago. If you try to type in the whole name of something, it searches for everything with any of those words in it, and you will rarely get the right thing. For example, if you have a recipe titled Italian Baked Chicken with Mushrooms, and you type the whole name in, it will bring up every single recipe that has one of those words in the title. So, it's best to type in one word that you know is in the title to get your recipe. And use one of the least common words. Your's also comes up on your page if you type in Hemp.

    I'm not sure why some ingredients are highlighted and some are not. It's a default thing with the site, and has no bearing on whether or not your recipe is seen. Anyone searching for Pesto on the site will find it. (It was on the 4th page when I did a search on the site for Pesto).

    It doesn't come up in the ingredients search with just "hemp" because that is not an ingredient. It does come up if you type in "hemp oil" or "hemp seed" as an ingredient. : )
