Breadcrumbs using microdata or RDFa
Hello,

Wondering if anyone has reformatted their breadcrumbs to utilize microdata or RDFa so that the breadcrumb will appear in your Google search results: https://developers.google.com/structured-data/breadcrumbs

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
George

Hi,

Mm, I don't see why it couldn't be done - but never really tried it. This looks like it could work:

Code:
<div id="a" itemscope itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Breadcrumb" itemref="b">
<a href="http://www.example.com/dresses" itemprop="url">
<span itemprop="title">Dresses</span>
</a>
</div>
<div id="b" itemscope itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Breadcrumb" itemprop="child" itemref="c">
<a href="http://www.example.com/dresses/real" itemprop="url">
<span itemprop="title">Real Dresses</span>
</a>
</div>
<div id="c" itemscope itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Breadcrumb" itemprop="child">
<a href="http://www.example.com/clothes/dresses/real/green" itemprop="url">
<span itemprop="title">Real Green Dresses</span>
</a>
</div>

So something like this may work:

Code:
<%loop title_loop%>
<div id="breadcrumb<%row_num%>" itemscope itemtype="http://data-vocabulary.org/Breadcrumb" itemref="breadcrumb<%row_num+1%>" <%if row_num > 1%>itemprop="child"<%endif%> >
<a href="<%URL%>" itemprop="url">
<span itemprop="title"><%Name%></span>
</a> &gt;
</div>
<%endloop%>

Hope that helps

Cheers
