Breadcrumbs or breadcrumb navigation on a website or blog helps users to navigate the content in a broader way, and they are on the site. For example, if you’ve published a post under the category “Parent” in the sub-category “Child”, the breadcrumb would be something like this:

Home > Parent > Child

A breadcrumb navigation on a site is generally placed above the content telling the readers the location of the content. With such a navigation, users can also browse under those categories and sub-categories for more content. Therefore, a breadcrumb navigation is necessary for more exposure of your content on web to your visitors.
