Google Announced Updates on Recipe Markup for Google Search and Assistant
Google has updated its recipe structured data documentation recently. It will aid webmasters to increase the visibility of their recipes in Google search and on Google Assistant including Google Home devices.
The new structured data properties will provide users more information about recipes, thus bringing quality traffic to the site. You need to use recipe ingredient and recipe instructions in the markup. The step-by-step instruction will help users to make the recipes.
Additionally, Google recommended to use the following recipe properties:
- Videos: to show users how to make the dish.
- Category: Mention the type of meal – dinner, desert, etc.
- Cuisine: Mention the region of your recipe – continental, Cantonese, etc.
- Keywords: Use keywords representing the season, occasion, or event.
The new update expanded the Google’s recipe markup launched last year.
