Implementing Pagination Attributes Correctly For Google

An interesting read on how Google handle the pagination attributes.

How the Pagination Attributes Work

The pagination attributes can be used for any set of content that spans multiple pages. Typical scenarios include multi-page articles, product listings, and forum discussions. Simply use the rel=next and rel=prev attributes to link all pages in a series together. For the following set of pages:

  • www.site.com/products?page=1
  • www.site.com/products?page=2
  • www.site.com/products?page=3

The pagination attributes would be as follows:

Page 1:

<link rel=”next” href=”http://www.site.com/products?page=2″>

Page 2:

<link rel=”prev” href=”http://www.site.com/products?page=1″>

<link rel=”next” href=”http://www.site.com/products?page=3″>

Page 3:

<link rel=”prev” href=”http:// site.com/products?page=2″>
