How Popular Is Google's Recipe View?

Have You Been Using Google Recipe View?

Google recently made headlines for launching Recipe View, a new way to search for and see online recipes. A month in, Food52 founder and New York Times writer Amanda Hesser shares her two cents, commenting that the "misguided" new search is "robotic rather than thoughtful."

Hesser goes on to explain how the engine's search algorithm — and its options for the ways in which results are refined — give vast advantage to large, established recipe websites that focus on quick, easy, and low-calorie recipes. In doing this, "Google unwittingly — but damagingly — promotes a cooking culture focused on speed and diets." It doesn't prioritize other crucial factors, such as comments, number of shares, and Facebook "likes."

Although I use Google a ton, I've spent little time with this new technology; I'd rather go directly to my trusted sources. What's been your experience with it?

It is alright but not perfect for me.

I need an option for: I had never even heard of it before.

I haven't used it yet. I'm with you, I just go to my trusted sites to search for recipes.

I wish recipe view had an option to show the image result of the recipe (but with the same factors like cooking time, ingredients etc). I've used it a couple of times but I always revert to Google images because the recipe view is based on the text of the recipe and i tend to make decisions more easily on recipe based on the image.
