Support » Plugin: The SEO Framework » Question About Breadcrumb Selection “ID” and “Name”

    Ran a test with breadcrumbs enabled and I noticed the “name” output (output below). I assume the breadcrumb would appear on the SERP as: Site Name > Article > Corvette.

    For our site, this would not be optimal. Ideally, it would follow our URL structure (example url: https://domain.com/cars/corvette/), so the breadcrumb would be: Site Name > Cars > Corvette. We setup our URLs to be as focused as possible.

    Is there a way to modify what “ID” is selected?

    If not, I can modify our taxonomies to get the desired output. However, since our URL structure is already ideal for our purpose, would breadcrumbs even provide any advantage?

    Thanks!

    <script type=”application/ld+json”>{“@context”:”https://schema.org&#8221;,”@type”:”BreadcrumbList”,”itemListElement”:[{“@type”:”ListItem”,”position”:1,”item”:{“@id”:”https://domain.com/&#8221;,“name”:”Site Name”}},{“@type”:”ListItem”,”position”:2,”item”:{“@id”:”https://domain.com/resource/article/&#8221;,“name”:”Article”}},{“@type”:”ListItem”,”position”:3,”item”:{“@id”:”https://domain.com/cars/corvette/“,“name”:”Corvette”}}]}</script>

    Hello!

    My apologies for getting back this late to you 🙁

    Just a heads-up: “Term” is WordPress-slang for any Category, Product Category, etc.

    The breadcrumb order is determined by the “primary term” selection, which you can find next or under the term selection of the post:

    1. When using the classic editor, you should see a radio-button appear to the right.
    2. When using the new block editor (Gutenberg), you should notice a selection-dropdown appear underneath when more than one term is selected.

    For example, see https://imgur.com/a/N7FtAn6.

    This option should modify the URL structure when using a %category% tag at wp-admin/options-permalink.php. It also affects the breadcrumb output.

    The breadcrumb’s advantage is that the URL output is more user-friendly. Non-web-savvy users tend not to read or even understand URLs. For more information, see Google’s documentation on breadcrumbs.

    No worries. Thanks for the followup.

    It does not sound like there is a way to modify the behavior, and in any case, as you said, it is for the user to have an understandable URL, which we already do.

    So we are pre-breadcrumb enabled!

    Thanks and have a great one.
