I have used the breadcrumblist mentioned by the schema.org for my [website](www.xenex-media.com.au)

<script type="application/ld+json">
  "@context": "https://schema.org/", 
  "@type": "BreadcrumbList", 
  "itemListElement": [{
    "@type": "ListItem", 
    "position": 1, 
    "name": "Home",
    "item": "https://xenex-media.com.au/"  
    "@type": "ListItem", 
    "position": 2, 
    "name": "About Us",
    "item": "https://xenex-media.com.au/gold-coast-web-designers/"  
    "@type": "ListItem", 
    "position": 3, 
    "name": "Our Services",
    "item": "https://xenex-media.com.au/digital-marketing-agency-gold-coast/"  
    "@type": "ListItem", 
    "position": 4, 
    "name": "Contact Us",
    "item": "https://xenex-media.com.au/contact-us/"  

And this is the result showing in Google searches:

What is missing? Please guide.

Please supply exactly what is broken. Error messages along with what you expected to happen.

I get the feeling you expected this to help your SEO or rank but from what I know, this feature is not about that.

-> Write more. Tell the forum what you felt should happen.

I have found that my code is working fine on the local searches now but it is not showing correct results on global results. There is no mistake in my code but it is totally in the control of Google to show the expected results. I was talking about these results: https://i.imgur.com/q9Uvc6K.png

@Xenexmedia This does seem to work now. It was probably due to the fact that it was not implemented correctly (from Google's side).

My markup was correct as per specification:

Sorry for taking so long to see this thread.

They did.

Good luck with getting Google to change this.

Knowing what to change to encourage Google's algorithms to change things is the point of this forum. Google is all about helping them to help you, and they go a long way towards providing the tools to make that happen. Schema is just one of many ways.

That being said, are you using Google Search Console? In the Enhancements section of Google Search Console, are they picking up on your schema? I noticed that the Breadcrumbs enhancements just very recently showed up in my GSC.

Looks like I was right on about breadcrumb enhancements recently showing up in my GSC. The official Google Webmasters twitter account announced it went live as of today => https://twitter.com/googlewmc/status/1174693878835875840

So basically what that means is log into your GSC, ask Google to crawl one of your pages that has breadcrumb schema, and you'll see if Google has a specific issue with your implementation, or if they understand it correctly.
