    Went in my public recipes to search for a soup recipe of mine.

    That Johnsonville recipe is not mine. Obviously.



    Are our filtered results now unwillingly to include "sponsored results"? Please say no.

    It's been that way for quite awhile. I think it sucks.

    It's the idea of the thing. It's misleading.

    Not only is it misleading, it's insidious to the point of disbelief. This is just the type of internet activity that is going to propel government regulatory action the likes of which we see in China right now, which I would find appalling! I am inclined to say "tell me this ain't true"! But, I have to believe what I see. OMG!

    This is not advertising, duonyte. This is corporate America adding content to something you have created without your knowledge or consent.

    It's also conduct that could get you on the front page of "Wired" magazine first, and then on to the Times.

    Presumably Sue can identify her own recipes since that's what she was searching and won't be mislead by anything. I don't like it much, which is why I use FF. But I also keep in mind that I pay nothing to use this site, and that the site needs to generate revenue also.

    It's just not fair to contributing members to imply the advertisers' recipes are posted by them. "Sponsored Result" is not very obvious or clear. What happens when they get reviewed? Or can they actually be reviewed?
    I have no problem with a business making a profit, but this is in my opinion, unethical and duplicitous.
    Sorry, but that's how I see it.

    So, tell me. Since this is NOT advertising, can you access Sue's cookbook and NOT see this? Simple question, requiring a simple answer. Yes, or no, duonyte.

    This has nothing to do with whether or not this is a free or pay site, and if you accept facts, MANY would still pay to access Food.com, myself included. And, I would even pay WITH advertising. Can you deny that what you have seen is within the bounds of what should be acceptable? Again, a simple yes or no!

    Thanks for your input.

    I think Johnsonville can find ways of promoting their recipes without tucking them in with mine.
    It makes it appear as though I endorse it, which I did not. If they want to pay me, then I might be more receptive to having their crap stuck in like it's mine. Or not.

    Then too, they might get more exposure for their piece of crap recipe, but then again, I will think of it whenever I see their product and quite possibly just pass it by.

    This IS a problem. It cropped up for the first time (that I know of) during the last ZWT. The staff said they were going to work on it.

    I can only access public cookbooks and my own cookbooks. I cannot access anyone else's cookbooks. I get no sponsored results in my own cookbooks.

    I don't know who made the decision to generate revenue with sponsored results. This is not the only place that does so and at least on this site I can block it, but I cannot on, for example, Google or other sites.

    Nobody made the decision to put sponsored results in people's cookbooks. That is a mistake and a problem that they are supposed to be working on.

    i think that's right - that they were for general searches through the entire database and not for cookbooks. In any event, I don't see them.

    Sue didn't search a cookbook. She searched her PUBLIC RECIPES ~ maybe it is like an ad that only she can see? (Sue ~ What browser are you using, and do you use an adblocker?)

    Using Firefox as my browser (and Adblock Plus), I searched her public recipes. sorted for SOUP in SEARCH THIS SET, and came up with 82 recipes, scrolled through them and didn't see any by Johnsonville!

    Hm. That may be why the sponsored results are showing up - they come up as a search for topic plus member name, but drawn from the database. In any event, adblockplus is now available on Chrome and I think adblock at least is also available for IE, not sure about the plus version.
