Blog pagination

Hi BeTheme,

My blog has 5 pages (www.domain/blog/page/5/) and each of these pages should be self-referencing.

So the canonical should be: www.domain/blog/page/5/ , but it references the main blog page instead.

Do you know why this is happening and is there a way to fix it?

Thank you


  • Hello,

    Sorry, but I quite do not understand. Can you explain to me greater your issue, please?

    Also, it would help if you attach a link to your website and screenshots showing what you are referring to.


  • Hi,

    Thank you for your reply

    See the image below:

    The page URL has /page/4/

    but we tell Google to ignore this page and instead index the /blog/ page (canonical)

    That canonical should be /page/4/

    Anyway to change that?

    Thank you!

  • Sorry, but I still do not get the whole concept.

    You want your fourth blog subpage to be your main one?

    Are you able to give me some example website with it, please?


  • Hi There,

    Please see the screenshot


    How to reset this function?

    I want my page 4 have a canonical that points to page 4 and NOT to page 1

    Older blog posts disappear from Google this way.

    PLease let me know if you can fix this

    Thank you

  • If you want to modify your SEO behavior and prevent some pages from being indexed, you will have to modify the htaccess file.

    Please, check the following link, where you will find instructions on how to do that.

    We recommend step number 1 or 3.


  • Hi there,

    Thanks for your reply.

    This has nothing to do with indexing, but the setting of the canonicals. This is most probably set somewhere in functions.php

    It's also a pretty serious issue and everyone using this theme will have the same issues with posts on subsequent blog pages becoming mostly invisible for Google :(

    Because you are telling Google (through the canonical) to ignore these subsequent pages and only look at page 1.

    I hope you will spend time to investigate this, because the importance of pagination is one for us to choose a different theme



  • Thanks for pointing it, I will pass this information to the dev team, and we will take a closer look at it.

    You also must be aware that Betheme has only a basic SEO option, and if you would like to extend it, you will have to use some plugins like YOAST.

    Best regards
