I'm wondering if it's acceptable to use rel canonical on paginated pages, so that they point to a central location?
I checked Matt Cutt's blog and this is what he seems to be doing. Check source of www.mattcutts.com/blog/page/23/ for example, there's a canonical tag that points to the home page (http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/).
However, I read that Google ignores canonical tags if the page content differs too much, so maybe there's no benefit to this at all. Thoughts?
