I'm writing structured data code for my breadcrumb and ran into a question about the position number of the item.
1. US-->2. WA--->3. King County--->4. Seattle
This is my breadcrumb for Seattle, which is in position 4. The numbers are not displayed to the users of course, but in the code behind for structured data, the numbers are required by Google.
However Canada doesn't have counties for their cities. So on my Calgary page, the breadcrumb naturally will not show a "county" level. but when it comes to the structured data code behind, which is appropriate, is calgary in position 3 or position 4?
1. Canada-->2. AB-->4. Calgary
1. Canada -->2. AB -->3. Calgary
Since all the US cities have the city at the fourth position, I wondered if I should "skip" a level for my pages on Canadian cities, but I'm not sure what the best practice is. Should I code my structured data to put canadian cities in position 4, or position 3?
