Food and Recipe sites are extremely popular, and there’s a reason: there is high demand for these kinds of resources. When you start your site, remember you should have a clear ‘About Me’ page, which highlights your passion for food and cooking. This is where you give visitors a reason to be interested in what you have to say.
You should also have a well defined niche. Gluten-free, paleo, vegan, healthy, Italian, French, Southern cooking, healthy eats, cheap eats, cheap and healthy, full fat and healthy- the possibilities are endless and the audience exists for virtually any category you choose.
See our cheatsheet below on SEO for food and recipe sites, and remember you can always generate your Free SEO Report at the end of this post, to see what SEO issues your site has.
