    Here are the ASP tags used to render the links for paging through blog posts:

    <asp:LinkButton ID="previousPage" runat="server" Text="<%$Resources:PreviousPage %>"></asp:LinkButton> 
    <asp:PlaceHolder ID="pageNumbers" runat="server"></asp:PlaceHolder> 
    <asp:LinkButton ID="nextPage" runat="server" Text="<%$Resources:NextPage %>"></asp:LinkButton> 

    "LinkButtons" produce <anchor> links that utilize "javascript" to function.  From an SEO perspective, this is a Bad Think (tm).

    When Google indexes my web site, these links will not be visited because javascript is required to navigate my web site.

    My personal opinion is that Sitefinity should avoid using "LinkButtons" unless 100% neccessary.
