What is the issue?

Broken pagination occurs when a page uses rel=next or rel=prev (used to define the next or previous page) yet links to a broken page that returns a 4xx or 5xx status code.

How to fix

Identify the pages from which the incorrect rel=next and rel=prev is linked. Then you can easily correct the link. Under the "documents" list in the report below, you can see which pages contain a rel=next or rel=preview link. The pagination targets list shows you the page referred to. Download the report, log in to your content management system, and work through the documents one by one to change the paginated link, or pass the list on to your developers.Learn more about this in our wiki and magazine.
