    Breadcrumb are very much used and useful for E-commerce sites. They are widely used in big sites i.e having many categories and sub-categories. It's also a useful part of SEO. In Breadcrumb navigation we should try to use our Keywords which will be very much useful.

    Yes, breadcrumb is useful from users as well as search points of view. It helps users to easily navigate the website. It should be properly developed in the site.
