My module is paginated. I want to either add a trailing slash or remove a trailing slash. For now i am thinking of adding a trailing slashes to all URLS.

What will be the effect on adding a trailing slash for paginated URLS like sitename.com/module/page/5/

what will be the difference in /page/5/ vs /page/5 with respect to the users, seo and crawlers?

The reason for always trailing slash on/off is to prevent duplicate content because of which the site gets penalized.


There is no difference. As long as you are consistent (by always using the slash or always omitting it), the URIs are just a string of text to search engines.
