    Hi there,

    I'm seeking help on how to add the recipe image in the plugin so that I shows in search results. Any advice?

    Thank you.

    To get your recipe image to validate with Google Webmaster Tools, add the photo and then update the image class to "photo". (class="photo").

    At this point it should validate.

    However, Google search doesn't honor correctly marked up recipe formats for sites it doesn't want to. This is why my recipes which validate on Webmaster Tools, never show the images in the search results. Google only seems to honor the format for larger recipe specific sites.

    Good luck.

    "Google search doesn't honor correctly marked up recipe formats for sites it doesn't want to."

    Yep.

    Google also reserves the right to choose how to display author attribution.

    I see it as a Lose-Neutral game. Adding semantic information is necessary because everyone else is doing, so you lose if you don't. It's neutral insofar as Google may or may not display the markup.

    Which gives us as providers 3 choices: 1. Play to win, 2. don't play at all, 3. or play like you don't give a damn what Google does or does not do. I'm playing Option 3 myself.
