Breadcrumbs And/ Or Wp Categories As Nav Buttons Question:
Posted 19 July 2012 - 08:22 AM
And the Breadcrumbs NavXt plug in "parses" the categories
(example using Bruce Clay's several years old explanation of site siloing:
peanut butter>crunchy>low sodium etc)
Then... maybe if the above is working, would it be "duplicate content" to also have the nav buttons be <home> <about peanut butter company> <crunchy> <creamy> ???
My question is:
Does having the breadcrumbs function in this fashion in an effort to "site silo" be either:
A) unnecessary to also have the Nav buttons perform this function
would it be considered duplicate content and draw the ire of the Penguin Update?
PS - I posted this same question on the WarriorFourm but lately haven't been getting quality answers there

Offering breadcrumb links is good usability, as it will give visitors the ability to instantly orient themselves as to "where" they are on the site.
Offering only breadcrumbs without "regular" navigation is poor usability, as many people won't notice the breadcrumbs and even those who do will still be looking for normal site navigation.
Offer the breadcrumbs because it's the right thing to do for your visitors. Offer standard navigation buttons/links/menus, too, for exactly the same reason. The search engines will not penalize you for making your site more visitor-friendly.
