Pagination is used to break down a page or post into several pages. I do not usually write long posts so I have rarely needed to use this feature. However, there are times a paginated blog can greatly enhance the reader’s experience.
Breaking your post down into smaller chunks will make it easier for your website visitor to read. But you should be careful to only use pagination when your blog is long enough to benefit from it.
Paginating a blog can also help your blog to load faster. This can be especially important for blogs containing a lot of pictures.
If used correctly, pagination can have a positive effect on your SEO. This is because it leads people to click through more pages within your website, showing more user engagement. However be careful not to abuse this as over-paginating can frustrate the reader and reduce engagement.
The blue.lift template supports pagination. This means that it will display paginated posts and pages correctly. And unlike many other WordPress themes, the blue.lift template uses Google’s pagination scheme so it is properly optimized for SEO.
