Pagination is a technique used to divide large HTML documents into multiple pages, providing users with a more manageable way to access extensive information. For example, pagination is used by e-commerce websites to divide product categories into smaller parts. Pagination can also be found in lengthy articles and so on. However, pagination can pose challenges for search engine bots if certain content on pagination pages is inaccessible to them. At JetOctopus, we frequently encounter various pagination issues with our clients, prompting us to develop a solution that simplifies analysis. As a result, we have introduced a new report dedicated to pagination analysis within our crawl results.
What does this new update bring for pagination analysis? We have created a dedicated dashboard in the Indexing section solely focused on pagination.
By default, pagination is detected using the rel=”prev” and rel=”next” HTML attributes. However, additional rules often come into play. To accommodate these varying scenarios, we allow you to customize the pagination scheme according to your specific requirements. You can add your own rules to filter and identify pagination frames. For example, if your website follows a pagination format of “page=2”, simply enter “page=$PAGE” in the corresponding field to obtain a comprehensive breakdown of the pagination pages. This customization enables you to gain unique insights and promptly detect any pagination-related issues.
The Pagination report in our new dashboard offers convenient charts that visualize the relationship between pagination pages and the rest of your website’s pages. With just one click, you can identify pagination pages that return a 404 or any non-200 status code. Similarly, you can quickly detect non-indexable pagination pages. It is crucial to address non-indexable pagination pages as search engine bots will be unable to access the information contained within them.
Our latest update empowers you to effortlessly identify and resolve technical issues associated with pagination on your website, leading to improved SEO performance.
In conclusion, the new pagination analysis update introduced by JetOctopus brings enhanced functionality and ease-of-use to the process of analyzing pagination. By customizing the pagination scheme and utilizing the dedicated Pagination report, you gain valuable insights into any technical problems related to pagination on your website. This enables you to optimize your SEO strategies and ensure that search engine bots can effectively crawl and index your content. Stay ahead of pagination issues and enhance your website’s SEO performance with JetOctopus.
