We have a blog - which is current spread to 9 pages, every page has a unique title - page 1, page 2, page 3 and so on.
Also, as it's a blog, every page has unique 10 listing entry on one page.
rel="next" can be safely ignored as all these are listing and not content pages of article. What I read in all through Google Search is that
rel="prev" should be applicable on where the content is spread across multiple pages.
But - as it's a blog, it has blog listings and every listing has unique content
This is the blog:
May recommend, if by ignoring
rel="prev" - are we inviting Google to treat the blog listing pages as duplicate.
