I have been building a large recipe section to a site I’m working on and a lot of recipe sites I have researched have a rating/review/comments box at the bottom of each recipe. It seems that it’s a requirement for Google to show a recipe in the ‘recipe’ specific listings in google search, which all have ratings.
I have only found ‘intensedebate.com’ but this seems to be only for comments. It would be handy to have something people can rate the recipe or drop a review.
Disqus is the obvious go to but I don’t want to pay for it if possible and apparently it inserts ads.
