Advanced Breadcrumbs was developed to improve Magento 2's built-in breadcrumbs functionality (secondary navigation scheme that reveals the user's location in a website).  It refines the SEO side of the breadcrumb links as well as enhances the customer experience.  This extension allows you to display full breadcrumb trails on product pages even when your Magento is configured to use URLs without category keys. This is very important when you visit a product page by following a search results link. It improves search engine optimization and also improves customer navigation experience.

Advanced Breadcrumbs also adds structured data markup to Magento 2 breadcrumbs making them visible for search engines. This helps Google associate products with corresponding categories and display product breadcrumbs in search results.

In the case where a visitor follows a product link from a search results page, the visitor may want to go back to the search results page. To solve the issue, the plugin adds a specific breadcrumb "Search results for..." that leads to the search results page.


Main Features:

  • always full breadcrumb trails;
  • breadcrumbs rich snippets
  • structured data markup (rich snippets);
  • possibility to display multiple breadcrumbs paths;
  • possibility to select a preferred trail per each product; 
  • special breadcrumb link for search results;
  • breadcrumbs on customer account pages;
  • breadcrumbs on cart and checkout pages;
  • breadcrumbs on any other pages;
