Our Remove Breadcrumbs Chrome Extension Has Been Updated 🎉
You may know that we're behind the popular Detailed SEO browser extension for Chrome and Firefox (120K+ weekly users — which we're very appreciative of) but you may not know we're also behind a little-known extension that makes auditing websites much easier.
We call it 'Remove Breadcrumbs' because that's exactly what it does: Remove the breadcrumbs you see in Google search results, so you can see exactly what you're clicking on, and what Google is crawling for your (or your clients') websites.
You can watch the extension in action below:
The extension is 100% free and always will be.
You can download it directly, here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/remove-breadcrumbs/banhponphmmpnpogmfaahcgkgbgkcoka/
If you don't have time for the video and just want to see an image of what it looks like in action, check out the Hubspot URL in the screenshot below:
Please don't mistake this as being an insult to HubSpot, but that extreme URL - that you can only see because of our extension - is the exact kind of thing I want to notice that I might not have seen otherwise.
When websites are especially large, even looking through ScreamingFrog, Sitemaps and Google Search Console can still mean you miss something.
This is just one more way to get another view of what is happening on a site.
Google made some changes to their search results around two weeks ago which stopped the extension from working, but we've updated it and all is well again.
If you already have it installed there's nothing you need to do. It will update automatically.
Updating the extension seemed like a great opportunity to let you know about it if you hadn't came across it before.
There is absolutely no tracking of any kind in the extension and it's 100% free.
I really hope you find it useful!
