This has been asked before as I've read it but can not find it anymore so...

I'm adding content to a site and do not want to trigger anymore penalties. I guess this one would fall under targeting multiple keywords under a similar topic.

Ok, I have a a really long article and believe it would be best for the reader to break it up into 3-5 pages each covering a different subset of the same topic. The article would just be way too long to put onto one page for usability purposes.

What type of SEO titles should I be using as to not trigger any keyword over opt. penalty? I've seen some sites just use the same keyword for all 5 pages but in reality if someone searches the topic they would probably get sent to the first page and have to scroll through 5 pages to find the exact topic they want. Is there a thread floating around for 2013's best practice?
