A Breadcrumb trail is a navigation aid that makes the route to a page visible to the visitors. With breadcrumbs your visitors will easily orientate on your website and by clicking on a breadcrumb item they can directly open the page it points to. Breadcrumbs help search engines crawl your pages and easily understand its hierarchy. Also, your breadcrumb will be added to the bottom of your Google SERP listing entry and your visitor surfs better.

You will find breadcrumb settings under Theme Options » General » Breadcrumb:
