    how should pagination be optimized for seo? the default pagination for a blog is to start at 2 and then count up:

    myblog/
    myblog/2
    myblog/3
    myblog/4
    myblog/5

    but publishing a new post moves all the existing posts down one step. therefore paginated urls will have their contents completely changed after a few days.

    google is obviously taking the challenge and re-indexing/updating these urls regularly. but can a location that has completely different content on every crawling attempt be trusted?

    what's the seo solution for this? follow,noindex on paginated pages?
    or create perma-paginating by month instead of counting?

    The same goes with tag and category pages I think. they fall info duplicate content issues as well.

    What is do is to noindex on page/tag pages and only index home/categories and individual posts.

    But this is just me...
