Turn on breadcrumbs

If you like the idea of providing your site visitors with hierarchical representation of where they are on your site, you are probably using breadcrumbs.

They are really useful for both users and Google. Breadcrumbs can help Google understand the relevance of your site to particular keywords. Now, you can easily turn on breadcrumbs via WordPress Customizer. Simply go to WordPress Customizer > General tab > tick Display breadcrumbs:
