comment SEO pagination for items sorted in reverse chronological order
The original question is abstract, this is specific. I thought comments are there to provide extended/specific information :)

@Max Yes, it does. But is it right to do that?

As I commented on @closetnoc's answer: "The use case is flash sales website. So even if user got to the paginated category page with the product relevant to his search, it wouldn't be relevant anymore, because the sale would be over." The goal is to tell a search engine that there is a lot of content, but it should navigate searchers to the first page, because it should be the most relevant to them. Can using rel="prev", rel="next", rel="canonical" help to achieve this? As stated here - support.google.com/webmasters/answer/1663744 -, Google will most likely send people to the 1st page.

"It is better to list the newest items in the first page, as your website will be more live, and most of the visitors will want to see the fresh arrivals." Yes, of course. Let's use your example - I have category located at example.com/cpu/ with 1000 items and pagination is 100/page. The question is what should be the second page's URL - example.com/cpu/2 (option 1 from original question), or example.com/cpu/999 (option 2)? What should be the last page's URL - exaple.com/cpu/1000, example.com/cpu/1?

Do you have any resources regarding this? The thing is I've had a dispute about this with a colleague and he insists that content on every page in pagination has to stay the same forever (i.e. option 2), that is has great effect on SEO.

Yes, URI keywords don't add anything. The main question is whether content on each page should stay the same forever (option 2, i.e. even if I add 1M new items, there will always be I30...I1 located at /item?page=1), or not?
