Been working with SEO for almost a decade now, and while we were building paginators I seemed to remember Google having specific guidelines for paginators in order to maintain distinction between page, page/2/, page/3/ and not count it as duplicate content.
One alternative discussed here is:
<head>section of the first page (http://www.example.com/article-part1.html), add a link tag pointing to the next page in the sequence, like this:
<link rel="next" href="http://www.example.com/article-part2.html">
Some testing on this made us conclude this entails a second paginator.
Another alternative is
rel="canonical". The problem is .Permalink, .URL etc points to the “first page”, skipping /2/
@bep hva sier du?
