    Thank you for this very helpful post! As someone who is just getting started with a new food blog, I will be applying for Rich Pins! I had been reading the arguments against them and wasn’t going to apply. However, you have changed my mind.

    I especially appreciate your point about people saving the pins for later rather than making the recipe right away. This makes total sense to me. Obviously, I also want to optimize search results!

      We are so glad this was helpful! Pinterest can be fickle, and it’s good that you are taking your long-term business goals for your food blog into account!

    I completely agree with this. As a Pinterest user I find recipe rich pins so much more useful and I’m much more likely to click throuh to the site if I can see ingredients that I know I already have. I think the clicks people get from disabling rich pins will be a lot of people clicking to see the ingredients, finding they don’t have them, then clicking away. Hardly quality clicks!

    Enabling rich pins was one of the first things I did when I pinned my first original recipe. They are so helpful. I think the bounce rate will actually be lower, as the audience knows what to expect before they click. Also time spent on page will be longer. Just my 2 cents. 🙂
