I Think I Have Fixed The Breadcrumb Missing Field Error

Last Update: September 26, 2019

OK, as you all know, I have been fighting the breadcrumb errors since last week, after a short break from Google Search Console, I decided to give it another go. I did not get anywhere even after watching a series of videos on YouTube.

So I went back to one of my website because I remembered seeing a breadcrumb feature in the theme options menu, where it says show breadcrumb I selected no, and then I went back to Google Search Console and clicked validate fix and it worked!

It says they are validating my fix.

It sent me an email that they have started validating my fix, so I guess removing the breadcrumb feature is what helped, so now my website has no breadcrumb trail but I hope not to see breadcrumb errors again.

As we know breadcrumb trail is supposed to show the visitor where they are on your website(post), where they came from (home page) and where they should go next (category) well, thats what I have learned these past few days.

I always link my home page at the end of every post I write so my visitors will not get lost, they can always go back to the home page.

But My Super Affiliate Site Still Has The Errors

As for my Super Affiliate Challenge site, well, that one still has errors because I switched from All In One SEO to Yoast, but I just might turn off the breadcrumb feature in Yoast and in theme, so I can have peace of mind.

I hate seeing errors, they drive me crazy.

If you are having the same errors, just go to appearance > customize> theme options, and then turn off the breadcrumb and publish, then go to Google Search Console and click validate fix.

Based on all the articles I have read the past few days, not having breadcrumb trail on your website will not hurt your ranking in search engines.

Just make sure to either link your home page at the end of your articles or choose what your visitor should do next whether it's to go to the next post or go back to the top of the page.

Thank you for your time.

Thank you so much, Laura. I guess the solution is to just turn them off, and actually someone had suggested that to me, but I didn't even know where to do that until I remembered seeing something like that under theme options.

Oh, yes, I have been fighting this issue for a few days and I don't even care that I will not have breadcrumb trail on my websites, they are nothing but a headache to me.

I did wish that I knew a thing or two about coding.
