Information for Webmasters

Reciplay works by looking for Schema.org markup or JSON on a page containing a recipe. If Reciplay finds that, it parses it and saves the recipe information. If it cannot find any Schema.org content, it takes a best-effort approach to parse what recipe information might be on the page. For best results, make sure your site or blog serves up valid Schema.org data.
