    rel canonical question for multiple blog pages

    I'm doing some SEO work for a site that has a pretty long blog. There are 11 pages, and I'm wondering how to move forward.

    Page 1-11 all have the same meta description and titles. For page 2-11, should I...

    <link rel="canonical" href="https://www.website.com/education-blog/" />

    So make them all go back to the original blog page. Or...

    <link rel="prev" href="https://www.website.com/education-blog/page/2" />
    <link rel="next" href="https://www.website.com/education-blog/page/4/" />

    For each of the separate pages, so we know it's a list?

    Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it!

    Hi skessenich,

    If you want all the pages/content indexed/searchable/available via google, I would go with:
