It's alright, Mojo. We can learn more words during we read the recipes. And I feel very good about it: learning words and learning how to cook at the same time!
And well, I think all of these comments or replies under your recipes are useful, because they bring more attention from the search engine visitors. More (related) comments = more popularity and more chance for us to get more traffic (visitors) online.
The more powerful websites/communities may afford to buy some Facebook traffic, Twitter traffic, Reddit traffic and so on (they hire people to share their threads online). We haven't budget for this. All we may do is to make some links/shares by ourselves (but it's not every time welcome in other websites, because for a lot of them, if we share even a recipe or food photo, 'it's spam' and 'we are spammers'.
). So our only hope and chance to get rid of the poverty online is through the natural traffic from the search engines as Google, Baidu, Yandex, Bing, Yahoo and a few more. This motivates me (and probably the rest of the colleagues here) to be more active, when someone posts something meaningful and to support his or her thread with comments, questions, related links. And I'll give you an example right now. When I read this recipe, I don't know what exactly is 'Marsala'. Good opportunity to learn more and I found online that it's a wine. And because I'm 109830921830786% sure 90/100 of the guys around also have/had no idea about it, then voila, a link: http://www.sicilyweb.com/english/trapani/marsala.htm
So, now I'll comment on your Easy chicken salad
