Web Scraping: Gathering Culinary Treasures
The heart of our Recipe Recommendation Engine lies in its ability to scour the web for a plethora of recipes:

Ranking Algorithms: Elevating Quality and Relevance
Not all recipes are created equal, and our ranking algorithms ensure that users are presented with the best and most relevant options:
- Traffic and Engagement: We analyze web traffic, social media shares, and engagement metrics for each recipe source. Recipes with higher traffic and engagement are likely to be well-received by users.
