i've added recipe ratings, ingredients, pictures and cooktime capsules to 1/2 my recipe hubs and seen no change in trafic. in addition, they're not even seen by google searches!
eg, a google search for 'Hunan Ginger Pepper Pork'
shows my hub 1st on the first page. but under recipes it doesnt appear at all - and there are only 3 listings! this hub was updated more than a week ago.
search for "Lamb Eggplant with YuXiang sauce" and my hub again shows on 1st page of results. it again doesnt show up - interestingly - the recipe search does produce my website page that just links to the hubpage!
has HP done any studies to test the efects of adding these new capsules?
You can test that your Hub has the right format, and preview how it could appear with the Google Rich Snippets Testing Tool. Just being in the right format (which your Hubs are) does not guarantee that Google will display it in that format in the search results. They also say "It may take some time for rich snippets to appear in search results or Place Pages".
And that link also caused me to realize that I had to modify my titles! Thanks again!

I wanted to share two trends I see in content that are very successful today. The first one is what I call the opposing argument to the search term. Google wants balanced search results. You will often see articles that promote a very positive sentiment, but rarely will you see opposing or...

Many of us have had problems recently and historically with Google rankings and traffic. It's of course a huge issue for all online writers but especially those of us who depend upon it for a living.What happens, however, when Google's top search results are proven to be wholly inaccurate and...

I like my Hubs (and my websites) to look clean and be simple and uncluttered. I just think it looks better and frankly, more professional. My problem then is that every time I write a new hub, i get the email saying it could be featured if I would make some changes. These changes would make my hub...
