    • Click Save.
  6. Return to Google Search Console to complete verification of your site.

Breadcrumbs report

MindTouch already uses structured data for breadcrumbs as part of Technical SEO automatically handled by MindTouch. Google added a new Breadcrumbs report to Search Console in September 2019.

The new Breadcrumbs report is showing a Missing field "itemListElement" error for some MindTouch sites. This error may impact how breadcrumbs appear within Google search rich results.

MindTouch Engineering is currently investigating to resolve the issue.
