Well... there have been many topics about this but I am looking for clear answer regarding placing home page at the beginning of breadcrumb trail.

First of all, I set in the breadcrumb trail - homepage on the first position, with the same @ID as schema markup json script placed on the homepage stating that homepage URL is WebSite type. Actually, in the same way that Apple do this on their home page including WebSite type json script. To clear it, I used later on thisat @ID in breadcrumb trail on multiple sites.

So, I do not know why but I noticed that on some of my webpages, showing in Google the path for breadcrumbs including home page two times:

HomePageURL > Home page > WebPage

Is there any way I can manage this and avoid showing doubled HomePage site in the breadcrumb trail?

Google says we should not include HomePage if we refer to their article. Is it right? Or else, I am doing something wrong?

Apple i.e. do not add Home page to their breadcrumb sticking to what Google says.

  • Can you share the JSON-LD code that you are trying to use? You can change the @id's to be example.com and such to remain anonymous if you would like. It just might help to see what you are working with. – David Csonka May 18 at 11:00
