    Rel Next/Prev it appears is not needed !


    It does appear we can reliably rely upon Google to not tell us anything, LOL.

    All of the paginated content we so carefully add re=next/prev to, well Google apparently pays no attention to this markup and they don't use it.

    Google seems to think we build excellent sites, LOL, Here's the article, image is linked.

    If you have never failed in your life, you have never achieved anything Noteworthy !

    This is the kind of thing that frustrates many webmasters and SEOs that spend time implementing it.
    I see Google has updated the blog https://webmasters.googleblog.com/20...d-relprev.html

    Yep, it's funny they updated the page so quickly, LOL

    The hint that sites were structured such that it was easy for Google to consolidate them, could it be from the pagination that has been used.

    This brings about the question, does it matter from our perspective, meaning is there a better way to organize the pages. I mean how else would your organize 100 pages of "iPhone earbuds"?

    Yes google couldn't care less about us for this reason sometimes we have to go around its rules despite of risking being penalize. In my experience if you want to get a second or third page indexed it is a matter of links. Get a proper link and make sure you have a relevant content in your secondaries pages and that's you got it
