    I'm really stuck in this one, I know how to use the <!--nextpage--> to split a post into multiple pages but my problem is that the page 2, 3, 4, 5... is not being indexed by search engines. Only the page 1. I've waited for almost 2 weeks now and when I search the url on google: URLcom/post/2) it will only show the URLcom/post/

    Is there any way I could do to make SE's index the other pages? I really need to figure out this one since my post has 2500+ words and search engines are only indexing the first 600 (page 1).

    I don't have any reputations to give but I will be very grateful if someone can help me out with this...

    I solved it. For those of you who are having the same problem, check if your paginated content has a "rel=canonical" if so, remove it. This will then make the SE's index all of the paginated content. If you are using wordpress, the yoast plugin will easily solve this by adding the rel="next" and rel="prev" automatically.
