I have a Wordpress site with some posts splitted in pages. I added post pagination via this code:


<?php wp_link_pages(array( 'before' => '<div class="page-links"><span class="page-links-title">' . __( 'Pages:', 'twentythirteen' ) . '</span>', 'after' => '</div>', 'link_before' => '<span>', 'link_after' => '</span>', 'next_or_number' => 'next_and_number', 'separator' => '', 'nextpagelink' => __( '&raquo;' ), 'previouspagelink' => __( '&laquo;' ), 'pagelink' => '%')); ?>


add_filter('wp_link_pages_args', 'wp_link_pages_args_prevnext_add');
 * Paginacja w postach
function wp_link_pages_args_prevnext_add($args)
    global $page, $numpages, $more, $pagenow;
    if (!$args['next_or_number'] == 'next_and_number') 
        return $args; # exit early
    $args['next_or_number'] = 'number'; # keep numbering for the main part
    if (!$more)
        return $args; # exit early
    if($page-1) # there is a previous page
        $args['before'] .= _wp_link_page($page-1)
            . $args['link_before']. $args['previouspagelink'] . $args['link_after'] . '</a>'
    if ($page<$numpages) # there is a next page
        $args['after'] = _wp_link_page($page+1)
            . $args['link_before'] . $args['nextpagelink'] . $args['link_after'] . '</a>'
            . $args['after']
    return $args;

I really need to add "rel=next" and "rel=prev" tags for those paginated pages. I need to do it so Google will be able to distinguish page 1,2,3 etc (just like in this tutorial).

The only problem is that I don't know where should I add these tags. Does anyone have an idea how can I modify the code above?

Here's my example post with pagination.

Thank you, Kacper

  • You already have necessary information in the document head: <link rel="next" href="https://www.gameron.pl/recenzje/red-dead-redemption-2/2/" />. And that's exactly what Google wants to see: Indicating paginated content to Google – Max Yudin Dec 17 '18 at 16:13
