Bread crumb tool: An easier way to get rich snippets

October 19th, 2012 by Patrick Sexton

If you know what bread crumb rich snippets are and you want to use them on your website there is now a tool to help you do so, it looks like this…

You enter your info and this tool will mark it up for you with the proper rich snippet data for it to show up in the Google results. See it in action: go to the Bread crumb tool.
I found it quite difficult and repetitive to mark up bread crumbs on my websites. When I first tried it was messing up my styles and was a bit frustrating. I figured it out and wrote up a script to help me.
Today I decided to make that script into a tool anyone can use. Hope you like it.
