I am implementing a product listing. Google recommends having rel next and prev meta tags.

Would rel next and prev attributes on appropriate anchor tags, achieve the same result? Or is that completely different?

1 Answer 1


The rel attribute is valid on a elements. However, Google's best practices state that it expects a prev/next/canonical link to be in the <header>.
