Does google's category taxonomy only apply for Shopping search or can I use it for my product ecommerce site that isn't in google Shopping?
In the past I used it in my product feeds and it worked great. Can't afford to pay to show up in Shopping so now I will incorporate schema into my product pages, including "breadcrumb" for each product page and hopefully that will help me show up more in organic search.
That got me wondering about using a META schema breadcrumb incorporating google's taxonomy for each product page. Has anyone tried this?
I know I could test this myself but I made a mistake in redesigning my website once and it took me months to figure out why I had disappeared from search so I'm a little wary of just jumping in and testing something without some good advice.
