How to activate the WP Recipe Maker integration in Yoast SEO

Yoast SEO automatically adds structured data to your posts and pages. To connect all the separate pieces of structured data, Yoast SEO builds a graph. This Schema graph helps search engines understand your content better. Okay, and what’s in it for you? Well, if search engines can understand your content better, you are in fact helping them to present your content better in the search results. In other words, you have a higher chance of getting rich results. Since we at Yoast are not experts on Recipe Schema ourselves, we’ve partnered up with WP Recipe Maker. Together, we are going to help you stand out in the search results.

WP Recipe Maker Schema

If you have a recipe site, you need to add Recipe Schema to your pages. The free WP Recipe Maker plugin can do that for you. Then, we want to make sure that their Schema is added to the Schema graph Yoast SEO outputs. This way, we can connect all the dots and hand over a clear all-in-one structured data package to the search engines. So, what did we do? We’ve given WP Recipe Maker an API so that they can add their Schema to our graph.

How to activate the WP Recipe Maker integration

If both WP Recipe Maker and Yoast SEO are installed and activated on your site, the integration works automatically. So, you don’t have to activate something yourself.
