What is Breadcrumbs Error

Before moving to explain the process of fixing this error, we have to first be clear about exactly what it is, how it appears, where it is visible to you, and what are the effects if we do not remove this error from our blog/website.

Breadcrumbs are a type of text path that defines your website/blog path for a particular article, For example, if you created one blog and didn't mention the heading related to your blog content then how do people search that particular blog for that have created one text path it's not a different activity, you can name to your blog or add a label on it so people easily find out your blog that they are looking for.

If your blog has no heading or never goes to the home redirect it means your page has a breadcrumbs error, they are not easily identified by the user but you will check this error in your search console which makes it difficult to index by a Search engine. It is important to remove all errors from your website through Google search console this meets better SEO guidelines.

Errors that mostly occur 

1) Either "name" or "item.name" should be specified:  What exactly is the meaning of this sentence, I will clarify to you, this means your blog has a specific name or it has a specific class.

The first thing that you should always keep in mind when you write blogs is a proper heading that denotes our blog content so users easily go to the relevant article they searched.

Second thing if your heading is not clear, you should create a path like mentioning a class or label that shows the identity of your blog, for example, if in your blog you created 4 labels, you should assign a similar content article to one label.

For easy understanding to fix “Either ‘name’ or ‘item name’ should be specified” follow:

· Login your site’s dashboard 
· Select the blog which is affected 
· Edit the post
· Select a Label which you have made to add tagging to each blog
· Update your post after adding a Label
· Go to the Google search console
· Finally, ‘Validate‘ fixing

2) Invalid URL in field "id": If your blog/article has an invalid or not matchable URL to your blog content then the user or search engine facing difficulty finding a relevant article that they are looking for so for that you have to change your URL id or you decide a particular part and assign labels to those articles that are facing this type of issue.

Let's come to know what exactly the Breadcrumb is: It is an error that we can find in the Google search console while we index the article.  These errors can have a powerful impact on your site ranking. 

Our blog couldn’t be indexed due to this error, it can not be ranked on SERP.  Breadcrumb errors occur mostly due to navigational components.

3) Duplicate breadcrumbs - Check for pages with the same URL and if find a duplicate URL then either rename or add Canonical Tag to differentiate both. Blogger will only show one page with a given URL in breadcrumbs. 

How to Correct Errors 

I personally resolve breadcrumbs errors from my blogger account and here I give the exact trick or method that I used.

  • If you created labels for blogs but did not attach with one or more posts that are related to your label's name then you should name the blog to the related label.
  • Open the Google search console and start URL inspection that you have found the breadcrumbs error, and is not indexing to fix this you need to add a label on the particular place where you have found the error. Once this process is done, again start your Live URL test and wait for some minutes.
  • When the URL is indexed on Google after that you will see that now the same blog has no Breadcrubms error that you received before the live URL inspection.
  • Then you go to the Breadcrumbs option and go to validation that is mentioned in front of the error and start validation, after some hours or days, your error has been removed from your website/blog.
