I think out of all the incoming links, pinterest is the highest. What I recommend is create an account, make a board and title it Recipes or something like that and pin all your recipes up. Also if you’re using wordpress, install the Pinterest Pin It plugin so people can easily pin your recipes or articles up.
Food Porn Websites
No, it’s not naked food gettin’ cozy in foodbed. It’s sites where people submit a picture with a link and description of their recipe and if it’s good enough (the picture, usually), you get accepted and it’s listed on their site and you get a big boost of traffic for a while. Out of all the food porn sites I used, I found Food Epix as the most accepting.
It’s actually called Daily Buzz for some reason, and you have to sign up as a publisher. Once you do that, random articles get posted there and if you’re really lucky, you may even be noticed as the top recipes of the day, which you get you a hell of a lot of incoming traffic!
Tumblr is another pretty good option to get your contents out there. If you are lucky and come up with good key words, you may get lots of reblogs. Be sure to link the pictures to your website and the recipe, so that people can click on them!
Open a facebook page, invite your friends and install a widget on your website and post your stuff there. Facebook is harder for people to find at first, because it’s not one of thoe “search keyword” sites, but if you can get some shares, you have got something going there!
