How do I share a review?
To share a review first join Foodist (click on the join link) and then click on "New Food".
Fill out the form, including a photo, and click on submit.
Remember to take a photo of the dish before eating it, and then submit your actual review afterwards.
Most people submit their review using a mobile phone just after they finish the dish. Reviews are at most only 200 characters long so they only take a minute.
It's OK to submit reviews for the dishes of your fellow diners, as long as you trust their opinions or taste the dish yourself.
For the moment only reviews of foods (rather than drinks) should be submitted.
Chain restaurants (such as MacDonalds or Starbucks) are excluded. A chain is defined as having 5 or more sites.
What about Copyright?
All photos uploaded to Foodist must have been taken by yourself.
Foodist assumes copyright of uploaded photos.
Uploaded photos cannot be published elsewhere, including a blog or another website.
What are Paid Links?
Writers are paid for arranging links on other websites back to Foodist.
Links on regular sites such as a blog are worth $10 each. $5 upfront and another $5 if the link is still in place in 6 months.
Links on business websites (such as a restaurant or cafe) are worth $50. $25 upfront and another $25 if the link is still in place in 6 months.
Links from your own websites do not count as business links. Also business websites should be just that - business websites (such as a restaurant, cafe, or craft shop) - not compilation or directory sites.
If a Cafe or Restaurant links to their Foodist page (or any other Foodist page) from their website they'll be promoted at the top of the appropriate city homepage for 1 month. This is a great incentive to offer the business to place the link.
All links need to be on proper domains such as www.tomscafe.com, and not subdomains such as tomscafe.blogspot.com. Sites like Facebook or Twitter are also not counted. See further down for the full list of conditions.
To request payment for a link click leave a message on the Foodist forum.
There are a few caveats - don't worry if you don't understand the conditions, the majority of links will be fine.
1) The link must not contain a nofollow tag. To check view the source of the page and make sure there is no rel="nofollow" in the link back to RecipeYum.
3) The links need to be on the actual website of the restaurant, not Facebook or any other site. The website should be a proper domain such as peterscafe.com rather than a subdomain such as peterscafe.blogspot.com etc.
4) The domain needs to be in Google's index. To test this u search for the site on Google to see if it comes up.
