How to import Yoast Custom Breadcrumb Title
This post contain affiliate links to PluralSight courses, meaning when you click the links and make a purchase, I receive a small commission. I only recommend courses that I believe support the content, and it helps maintain the site.
I was recently migrating a number of sites from old WP installs to fresh locations.
The older sites used a combination of custom meta fields to hold data, and we wanted to move everything to one consistent flow.
In doing this migration I found that nowhere had documented a number of Yoast fields.
More specifically, I needed to know how to import the Breadcrumb Title Yoast Metadata, shown within the Advanced metabox.
WP All Import has a great article covering the basics, but it missed out the Breadcrumb Title!
To note: The above image shows “Breadcrumb Title”. This is only shown if breadcrumbs are enabled within Yoast settings. To find this go to “Yoast SEO” in the sidebar -> Search Appearance ->Breadcrumbs. And then scroll to the bottom.
I recommend taking a look at what Plural Sight has to offer. About $12 a month (currently half price), with access to a 2500 courses covering everything web development.
