Easy ‘Rich Snippet’ Breadcrumbs

breadcrumbsSometimes you just have to create those Rich Snippet breadcrumbs in HTML manually. And it’s a total pain to do. Especially if you’re not even sure where to start editing to create the next one.

So now you can use our nice and easy Breadcrumb Builder Tool.

It caters for both Microformat and RDFa output (stick to the default of Microformat if you’re not sure what either of those mean). It also copes with ‘multiple trails’, i.e. pages that have more than one heirarchy to reach them, e.g. Books > Authors > C.S.Lewis, and Books > Children > Classics.

You can also choose if you want your breadcrumb ‘current page’ to be a clickable link, text with no link, or not even shown – just leave the relevant boxes blank depending on what you want.

Now go forth and build breadcrumbs.

P.S. If you’re wondering why anyone would ever want to do this anything but programmatically – it’s simply because some website builder tools don’t give you that kind of control, or enough control to make things work the way you want them.
