New Recipe Search Engine

Thought you all might be interested in this press release for a new recipe search engine called FoodieView. I just took a quick look and it looks pretty good. It seems to cover quite a few sites including Epicurious, Recipezaar, About, AOL (which includes Cooking Light), Food Network, Martha Stewart, Discovery Home Channel, RecipeSource, Emerils.com, Splendid Table (NPR), and the list goes on. It appears to have some text ads at the top of the search results but no pop-ups. Pretty neat!

Update: found an article in Search Engine Journal with some more information on this site. It apparently includes some "big food bloggers" too.

what a freaking godsend. when i have a veg i want to use, i have to check out all those sites to find the most desirable recipe. but ah, those days are over. now a single source. that's straight up and down. far out. thanks for sharing!

This looks great! What I really want though is a machine that searches all of the blogs (especially for when we're doing DwB) - that would be cool... Business opportunity anyone??:-)

Niki said...

ooh ooh ooh! Excellent! Not that Google isn't good, but something more specialised is much better.

Ana said...

Cathy, thanks for sharing. We definitely needed something like this.

Hi Zarah Maria, I believe a page that links to/gets update from major food blogs is coming to www.foodieview.com

Check back maybe in a week or two to see the feature.

Hi all - thought you'd like that! :-)

Pollycharlie - actually a short list of major food blogs are already included in the search, but they are not returned as a separate search result. I got an email from the guy who set up the site and he's open to suggestions about other food blogs to include. Currently he's linking to Chocolate & Zucchini, Simply Recipes, Chez Pim, and Pinoy Cook. His email is: contact at foodieview.com

A nice source for some quick searching but I haven't been able to get the add to recipe box feature to work.

Hi, grommie,

Sorry about the recipe box issue, and thanks for letting me know. It should be fixed now. Let me know if you still can't get things to work.
