I am in the middle of a complete website redesign in attempts to update our coding because we were practically wiped with Panda but have not been able to figure out why. We need a new updated design anyway and decided this was the best course so jumped in with both feet.

Just about to go live with some pages and suddenly realized the design we are using uses static breadcrumbs instead of dynamic. I have always wanted to add breadcrumbs because I feel it would help the user experience but post Panda/Penguin I am not sure of the best way.

Not sure of the best breadcrumbs to use either, in my research I find some that use the path and others the history (using a cookie). I thought I found the perfect one but then it uses the title tag, but I want it to use the file name, title would be way too long.

Someone point me in the right direction. Should I use breadcrumbs, how good is it for SEO right now?

Here is the test site / page with the 'static' one. " http://force7.us/spanish dot php"
As you can see the design was created for the breadcrumbs.

Thanks for any advice!

Having or not having "crumb trail" navigation is NOT an "SEO" concern but a User Interface/Design/Layout concern.

If the layout is set to use them, then use them!
