<H1> is where you put the page title (this is in addition to the <title> tag as they serve two similar but different purposes). If your goal is to improve your SEO through breadcrumbs then you will want to use the breadcrumbs microformat. This specifically tells Google, and Bing, that these are breadcrumbs. They will then use that to determine a ...
There is no definitive timeframe. In fact, there's no guarantee Google will use breadcrumbs in their search results for your pages. As with anything related to Google displaying search results, you can give them clues and express your wishes as for what to display in the search results but ultimately Google will decide if and when it will happen. All you can ...
The position of the H1 tag has basically no relevance compared to the content inside of the tag! A great descriptive text that reflects the contents of the page, is where the time should be spent. Another far more important thing to keep in mind is, how do users react to the placement of the H1 tag. Is it more intuitive for them to have breadcrumbs above or ...
If you want to optimize your breadcrumbs for SEO use semantic markup or microformats
This is a problem because it potentially will cause duplicate content issues with Google. But you can just use canonical URLs to indicate the one URL you want to represent that page. That easily solves the problem.
The answer to this is a No for SEO reasons - I don't know why you would want to wrap your breadcrumbs in a H1. If your concerned of your page not having a page title simply add this after your declare your doctype, within your <head> tag - <title>Page Title Goes Here</title>
In the eyes of Google the <h1> is one of the most important descriptors of your page's content. Unless your page contains a homepage, list of services, toilet cleaning overview and showcase (which it doesn't) then no don't do it! If you were to keyword stuff the <h1> and <title> for good rankings (which I don't recommend you do) - even ...
The important thing, I think, is that you have an obvious link to the homepage SOMEWHERE in the page header. So, if the logo is already linked to the homepage, you don't need a second link in the breadcrumbs, and you're better of saving the space for other crumbs. Since you said you're more concerned about SEO, it only matters if the homepage is linked at ...
You should use only one breadcrumb and for SEO make sure it uses rich snippets http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=185417 For all other categories which the listing fall into display them elsewhere on the page
The most important thing is that a search engine knows what the canonical, the original and unique version of "Service A" is. If "Service A" can be reached via different contexts, locations, click paths, it's better to actively tell the search engine of the canonical version than creating a duplicate content problem and waiting for unwanted search engine ...
I would do something similar (as breadcrumbs are really only for the user not search) but i would store it in a session variable instead of in the URL. Now i dont know what language you are in, but i use VB.NET so it's simply session("category") = 6 then read it back in when loading the product page.
If you don't have pages for Category A and subcategory, why are you making breadcrumb links for it? Breadcrumbs are supposed to make it easier for users to navigate your website. Linking to pages that don't exist achieves the exact opposite of that. You should remove the unnecessary breadcrumbs, and if you want to show that this product belongs to a ...
As for the version you are using it is the Intended to work that way. I suppose you could switch to Joomla 1.5 there is no breaking changes between the two versions, you can have a look here http://deeptechtons.com/ on the front page click the results the breadcrumb will display the title of the Poll itself which is neat.
for SEO, you need a title that is basically the main subject of the page including the keywords you're focusing on for the page, the h1 should be the same or similar (i.e. it should say what the page is about in 1 sentence(ish)). For the breadcrumb to be any good the elements should be links (<a>) to the corresponding pages.
I would say no. The semantic meaning of headers, H1 especially, doesn't really lend itself to breadcrumb navigation at all. I'm not sure how strictly search engines adhere to this, but having that many terms in your heading would look awfully spammy. I'd say keeping it in a standard [un]ordered list would be best, or even wrapping it in a nav element (which ...
The best way to address the third is using taxonomy. You'll have a vocabulary setup and the terms you want to use for charmain's speeches and community news are under that vocabulary (maybe call the vocabulary "News Categories"). You can make it so your news items use this taxonomy vocabulary (optional or required) and then you'll select one (or many) when ...
