Google Removes Breadcrumb Links From Search Results

1 comment

One thing I used to love about Google search was the breadcrumb feature, where I could click on the link to a higher level category page if the main link Google served me was not what I was actually looking for. This feature is no more. I read it here: https://www.seroundtable.com/google-breadcrumb-snippets-drop-hyperlink-19595.html

In disbelief, I checked Google search results myself, and alas, the breadcrumb links were indeed gone. But they do not LOOK like they are gone - Google still shows the text of the breadcrumb chain. According to the article above, nobody really knows when this change took place or how long it will remain that way.

May be temporal... It's

May be temporal... It's rumored to be some desparate measure to stop a hack... The fact that breadcrumbs are still there, albeit they are not clickable, makes me believe it may be true!
