Quite often you will see something like this which is called Breadcrumbs:

Breadcrumbs can be enabled or disabled via your site administrator area, and can usually placed in a site template module position, or for example at the top of an article or category.

The words "You are here:" can be chosen to be shown, or not shown, according to your administrator's preferences, as can the 'Home' text.

If you choose not to display the text: 'You are here' - your Breadcrumbs module will look like the next image . . .

'Home' usually refers to your website desginated home-page.

The highlighted words can be clicked and doing so will take your visitor to that place on your website.Breadcrumbs can perhaps be seen as a trail that lets your website visitor know where he or she is in terms of the hierarchy of your site's navigation.

Breadcrumbs is all automatic - little configuration is required except setting up whether or not the words "You are here" is displayed or not.
