    WordPress can be really annoying... Basically I was just wondering if the rel='index', rel='prev', and rel='next' tags matter? I don't mind them but my problem seems to be the fact that the index and prev tags show the same URL but different titles; this is due to the fact that I have set a static page in my WordPress blog. I don't really mind this, but could this cause any problems with SEO since there are two different titles linking to the same page? If this could be a problem, is there a fix? Does it really matter if the index and prev tags show the same URL but different titles?

    For those that have no clue what I am talking about, here's an example of my problem:


    <link rel='index' title='WebsiteTitle' href='http://www.WebsiteHomepage.com' />
    <link rel='next' title='Page2 Title' href='http://www.Page2Link.com' />
    Page 2

    <link rel='index' title='WebsiteTitle' href='http://www.WebsiteHomepage.com' />
    <link rel='prev' title='Page1 Title' href='http://www.WebsiteHomepage.com' />
    <link rel='next' title='Page3 Title' href='http://www.Page3Link.com' />
