The One Where We Discuss How To Get Pagination Right With Patrick Stox

This week, Sarah and Hannah chat to Patrick Stox, product adviser, technical SEO and brand advisor at Ahrefs, who also organises multiple SEO events including Raleigh SEO Meetup, Beer and SEO Meetup and Findability Conference.

They discuss beer, clean sheets and the hosts find out that Patrick loves musicals, would happily give up his phone and would rather live in a space ship rather than a submarine. 

They also find out about his career and how he first started off as a developer, and then his boss asked if he wanted to learn SEO and the rest is history.

Patrick was invited on the podcast to talk about pagination after Hannah came across a blog Patrick wrote all about how SEOs are breaking pagination and how to get it right.

They discuss everything from how the implementation of rel=prev/next has changed to whether pagination is important and debunking pagination conspiracies to crawl paths and making sure everything is discovered on a website.

Of course there is a feature and Patrick technically tries to cheat, but quizmaster Sarah is having none of it.

About your hosts

Sarah McDowell

Profile picture for Sarah McDowell
I've been in Digital Marketing and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) for around 10 years, currently working as the SEO Manager at Captivate (part of Global), the world's only growth-orientated podcast host. I am a self-confessed SEO nerd (I find the industry fascinated and love learning how search engines like Google work) and a bit of a podcast addict (with this being the fourth podcast I have hosted). I am also a speaker and trainer. I hope you enjoy this podcast!

Seriously Excited about Optimisations (is this not my online dating profile?). I love everything SEO, especially a good SEO analogy. SEO Manager by day, at the weekends, when I’m not with Sarah in our podcasting and SEO bubble, you’ll probably find me (literally) with my head in the clouds, up a mountain - with my husband Dom (who hopefully ignores the bit about a dating profile). Cat mum, vegan baker and aspiring photographer in what’s left of my spare time ✌🏻
