    What is the optimum number of words for use in a recipe? What can I do for recipes that have several mini-recipes for a single dish.

    As always the number of words is best determined by however many words it takes to cover the topic or write out a recipe.  If it's not long enough, you can add information that contributes information about the dish, such as history or cultural significance etc.  If there are several different versions of the recipe that you'd like to include that would also lengthen it.  Or you could include recipes for several different but related dishes in a single hub.

      @Natalie, thanks for giving me some new ideas about recipes.I will certainly try them out.Can I include all the ingredients in the same capsule.HP does not seem to have multi-capsule option for ingredients.

    It maybe impossible to write a 1000 word long recipe. Otherwise, you will need to write additional information about the recipe itself or ingredients.

      @Cuan,
      Thanks.I agree with you.Recipes are very tricky to write because they tend to be very short and one is often forced to add some fluff.

        They also do not generate much traffic. I prefer to go to dedicated sites like BBC Goodfood or Allrecipes.

          I agree. I had several Brazilian recipes but since they fell into the "unfeatured for lack of traffic" category I just deleted them.
          I can only think of one recipe writer with decent traffic.

          @raggededge, they generate traffic for me.You should try Pinning the pictures and also bookmarking them.

            When you say traffic, how much traffic daily?

            Thanks for the advice, but I'm not into recipes. I think I have one on artisan bread (unfeatured), and one on golden syrup pudding (which is the best dessert in the world). That one's on Delishably and gets a few visits daily, but nothing to shout about.

              My first thought on reading his comment was "How much?" Is he even getting 10 page views a day from these recipe hubs?
              I think that is fine if someone wants to write about the best dessert in the world, but recipes and poetry are not a method to earn an income here. (If someone can prove me wrong, please do so!)

                @DrMark,
                You seem to be a very skeptical person.I had previous account that I had published several recipes and they used to generate the bulk of my traffic.I am not seeing that one is going to earn an income from only publishing recipes.I have found that in-depth research on  recipes will help drive traffic especially from social sites like Pinterest.

                  If you think you are getting traffic to your other articles secondary to your Pinterest food pins, you are really not in touch with how traffic works. I suggest you do some reading, and maybe you too can learn to be a little skeptical.

                    @drmark Ok, take a look at my grill recipe
                    https://hubpages.com/food/Hearty-Weekend-Mixed-Grill
                    and tell me what you think.

                  You said, "they generate traffic for me." So, I'm interested in knowing how much traffic just in case I decide to write a hub on my granny's Cornish pasty recipe.

    You can only use one recipe capsule per hub, but you can add additional related recipes using text capsules and photo capsules.

      @Titia, Thanks.I will certainly try that.

    Oh hell Erudite Scholar, It looks like it is dangerous to call the doc skeptical and challenge the Good Witch*

    Maybe you can redeem yourself by posting some awesome daily views numbers for this recipe?

    *I am a fan Bev. This whole reply was intended good-naturedly, and that "Good Witch" was intended to be a compliment. I have looked at many of your hubs and an impressed by both your ability and your topics. So don't put a Banishment Spell on me. ;-)

    ps. Just making sure that Political and Social Issues forum aura doesn't follow me to the hubpages forums. ;-)

      big_smile I promise I won't. In fact, I'm sending magickal blessings to your hubs and CPMs.

      I was really hoping for some numbers from ES on the recipe hubs. Oh well.

        Thanks, and me too. I just can't see the logic of trying to compete, (with recipes), with the big boys like Allrecipes.com

        I have frequently dropped -- what I thought were good -- hub topic ideas when I see who has the first page rankings.

      @GA DrMark is a certified cynic while the raggededge is a 'Good Witch' as you put it.

        Okay, so we've given you some feedback on your recipe hub. Is it of any use to you? It takes time to review an article, and forum discussions are about give and take, you know.
