Why we should care

Breadcrumb trails tell users about a page’s position within your site’s hierarchy. Marking up your pages with breadcrumb structured data helps search engines display this information to users. If your breadcrumb trail isn’t displaying as expected, this new report gives you something to check, which may help you resolve the issue.
