Since I added the new capsules to a couple of my recipe hubs, I have seen their daily traffic double almost immediately! Thanks to the HP staff for working so hard to make this happen. (I think it is because the first image shows up on Google search pages!) What a wonderful feature! Mahalo nui loa!
Well that is great that your images are showing up in Google. The two recipe hubs that I did using the new lay out has done absolutely nothing as far as that goes for me. I just checked them both out in Google, and the hubs are there of course, but no picture.
Nor is the rating showing up. I checked out one of your cupcake hubs and see both the picture and rating showing up in the Google search. Not sure why mine are not showing up. I have the rating capsule up and photos up.
Maybe you aren't using the rating capsule for recipes? I think that might be it.
When you go to edit the rating capsule, be sure to select "recipe" (not "single user" or "multiple user"). Then, it should show up and Google will recognize your hub as a recipe.
Let me know if this works. I sure hope so! And if you get it right, I'm sure you'll be happy with the results! Good luck.
I did use the third option, of the rating capsule on both hubs, Brittany. Not sure what the problem is however.
Dale give it some time to update on Google, Takes some time even if you've submitted the updated version using Webmaster tools
Also, try deleting your cache you may be seeing previous results even though they changed.
Thanks Lobo! I shall try that when I get back in from work. Off to feed those sugar gliders.
One is showing the ratings and the picture, Lobo, the other, not yet. I see you know I submit to Webmasters Tools, lol. Maybe as you say, in time, the other will show up. Thanks for your suggestions as always.
I edited two recipe hubs also, and I just checked and both are on the first page of Google search! One has the #3 spot and one has the #7 and #8 spots and both have the pictures!

I just modified the two recipe hubs I had to include the new recipe capsules, hoping they would look like all the other recipes that pop up in results, and maybe I have to wait a little bit of time, but...It only seems...

I've been submitting hubs on HP to niche sites, and find the turn around time to be longer than a week in some cases. And it's usually a petty thing, not something listed in the rules. I had one hub held up two weeks...

Quite a few of my Hubs have related Hubs. I try to put a few links in a Hub to another related Hub when it seems appropriate. But I see that the editors often remove them. I have tried to find out why in past forum...
