Why aren’t breadcrumbs displaying in search results for my site?

Any updates on “Site hierarchies display in search results” (AKA breadcrumbs)? My site has clear breadcrumbs, but Google isn’t using them in search results. Any tips for adjusting the links, URLs, or HTML code to get this to work? Nick, Chicago More information about breadcrumbs: googleblog.blogspot.com

  1. @DOTKIX If it isn’t showing up as a search suggestion as you type in the search box, then I’d expect they are shunning them. because for sure there are people who have searched such content, so it’s not like there isn’t a previous reference for google to suggest with.

  2. Matt, if you link to somewhere with no follow and that site links back with a regular link is that seen as a reciprocal link by Google.
    thanks Matt

  3. Off topic and odd question: How does google “look” at adult sites? just like any other site or is google shuning them. Keep up the good work with the videos.!!!

  4. Poor Matt can’t even say ‘Breadcrumbs’ just kidding Matt:)

    See Google “Advertising Methods. How to advertise online and offline” and look a top unpaid link then Goggle Breadcrumbs on that page

  5. @valsen If you go to Webmaster Central (link is at the end of the video), you’ll find a link to the forum there.

  6. Matt, whats the url for webmaster forum? I googled it but couldn’t find it.

    Thanks Matt!

  7. @Conceptskatemedia It is amazing, yes, but not surprising: I worked for a vehicle factory company and they had teams for things down to the ash-trays, cup-holders and side pockets, not to mention several teams that dealt with different parts of the upholstery!

  9. WOW you guys have a “breadcrum team”. That’s amazing! I can’t even begin to imagine how many teams you have working at Google.

  10. [as I know] Breadcrumbs is like a UI page-navigation in the website.
    Commonly, Google indexes the home-page, and also the sub-pages
    [just like in the Explorer or X-Window].

    Sometimes, I’m also have the same problem like him.
    Get rid of some pages [the breadcrumbs] that already indexed by the crawler-bot.
    Yeah, “it does take time…” to change the search results, again.

  11. @xpose2000 Please see the blog post linked to in the video description. That should help! šŸ™‚
