[resolved] [Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Posts Pagination (10 posts)

    For my blog posts i use <!--nextpage--> to short long articles. A few version ago this plugin work good with canonical tag for post pagination. For example i have: site.com/blogpost and and second page of this post site.com/blogpost/2, for both these links i have the same canonical "site.com/blogpost/", and the second link not indexed by google, and this is correct because i do not have duplicate titles and content (comments).

    Now with new version is bad canonical work for pagination posts:
    For paginated post there is also a canonical tag that points to the paginated post. For example, page 2 of pagination has a canonical pointing to itself. This is not good because in this case we have duplicate page with content (title+commnets).

    Please add the old functionality of canonical links.

    Problem that I reported in this topic is resolved in 1.2.1 version of plugin?

    Some time ago Google instructed webmasters that the correct behavior is for canonicals of paginated texts to point to each individual page, not to the first page, and for the relationship between pages to be informed via use of rel="previous" and rel="next". So, WPSEO's behavior is correct.

    Ok, but how about attentions in webmasters tools http://i.imm.io/sBje.png about duplicate?

    This I don't know. Maybe the Webmasters Tools duplicated content test code hasn't been updated to reflect the new rules on canonicals and rels?

    I don't know, but before version of plugin 1.1.6 was ok in the webmasters tool, after this version updated - canonical link removed from pages of article to first page of article and this attentions appear...

    It might give warnings in webmaster tools but it IS the correct way of doing things.

    i'm also having the same problem. I use <!--nextpage--> a lot but its created a lot of duplicate meta description. Option Noindex subpages of archives only works for page.

    So how do i add page in meta description with <!--nextpage--> or how do i prevent google to index my paginated post. Thanks
