Hello!

I am publishing technology related articles and news on my site. PHP CMS based URL links I overwrite with mod_rewrite from Apache.
Every three new article move older ones to "pagination stack" - I have more 300 pages of published content with 3 articles on each.

The number of pages is growing and they look like :
page-news1.html, page-news2.html.... page-news300.html

Urls are the same but content changes and articles from page page-news200.html after couple of days move to page-news201.html

Google index those pages, but not so often as they move...

When people arives from Google by search , they often do not find what they want: it is already shifted further...

How does it affect my CRT and returning traffic? It is not high ~1% anyway...

Should I redesign my pagination algorithm that pages will not move, but instead new pages number will grow?

ok! thanks for reply! I will freeze my indexes in pagination ASAP...

Another related question:

Before I had paginated pages which had names just like page1, page2 and so on.

Then i started to think about SEO and renamed them to for example linux-page1 and so on. For while Google kept both names in index and i had some traffic increase by 20-30 % during one two months.

Now I think to change algorithm for pagination (I will do it myself) and thought: should I change paginated pages names to new, even more better ones - because Google almost immidiately will index them (they are referenced from frontpage of site) or not.

If I will not change name it will take a few months - maybe one or two until Google will reindex old named pages.

How does it affect page postion in SERP?

Do older names are preferable over new ones (even new are SEO better optimised) or older are better?

I know than older site than better, but with tech news older news and articles are not always better, they can be just obsolete :-( So does work this law with pages age?

Do you recommend to change page names before I "freeze" pagination indexes or preferable to "freeze" older names?

thanks!
