How to Set up Recipe Rich Pins on WordPress with just 3 Clicks | Pinright

Have you heard about rich pins and wanted in on the action. Do recipe rich pins sound just right for your business? This article will show you how to set them up in only 3 CLICKS!

Remember when designing a website was an almost impossible task? Spending days staring at HTML code on Dreamweaver (or notepad in my case! *sigh*). We left those coding days a long time ago with the introduction of CMS (Content Management System) based websites. It’s made designing and setting up websites an actual (semi) enjoyable task.

Of course we still have the option to dive into the back end of a website and tinker with code we probably shouldn’t, which brings me onto this article – setting up Recipe Rich Pins. Do you look at this and think “No way, I’m not even going to bother, that looks way too complicated”?
