Next: Linked title of the next page goes here
For certain kinds of articles - highly structured, with clear subsections, and not perforce linear - provide a brief quick links / table of contents with subhead titles spanning all the pages of the article that can be navigated from each page, or at least from the top of the first.
An option for readers, once landed, to view the whole article as one page. (Well, they do it for ecommerce product listings, why not for content? Is there a duplicate content issue? Fear of copying & pasting?)
In-text links to subsections of article, clearly delineated as part of the same article.
What I haven't seen, but what I'd like to see as a user, is some kind of cue right there at the top of page 1 that this is a multi-page article, and maybe even an option to take a shortcut.
rel="next" and rel="prev" link tags are also included in the <head> section
how did you deal with the /article-name vs. /article-name-1 potential Duplicate Content issue
Ican't stand this nor do i visit/read sites that do this.
Its Not fun to read, it gives the impression the website is milking every CPM it can for advertising and it slows down everything..
