Step 2.6: Pagination

Basic Concepts | On-Page | Canonicalization


Pagination refers to a series of pages that are connected or that you want to be seen as connected by Search Engines.

A good example of this is if you have a huge guide, like this one, which is many thousands of words in length… You don’t want that all in a single document or page, so you split it up into smaller chunks on different URLs.

Using the tags shown below within the head section of the source code allows you to specify which page is first, last, previous and next to Search Engines.


These tags look like this, we have used some example links to illustrate this more clearly:

<link rel="next" href="">
<link rel="prev" href="">
