Separating Paginated Results into Different URLs

Do Paginated Results Have Separate URLs?

Yes, paginated results in eCommerce platforms like Shopify and WooCommerce have separate URLs. This is crucial for SEO as it helps search engines understand the structure of your site and index your content properly.


In Shopify, paginated results are automatically assigned separate URLs. For example, if your collection page URL is https://yourstore.com/collections/all, the paginated URLs will look like https://yourstore.com/collections/all?page=2, https://yourstore.com/collections/all?page=3, and so on.


In WooCommerce, paginated results also have separate URLs. If your shop page URL is https://yourstore.com/shop, the paginated URLs will be https://yourstore.com/shop/page/2, https://yourstore.com/shop/page/3, etc.

Best Practices

  • Use Rel=”next” and Rel=”prev”: Implement these link attributes in the head section of your paginated pages to help search engines understand the sequence of your pages.
  • Canonical Tags: Ensure that each paginated page has a canonical tag pointing to itself to avoid duplicate content issues.
  • Content Strategy: Avoid thin content on paginated pages. Make sure each page has enough valuable content to be indexed by search engines.
