The main disadvantage of the custom paging in my previous article is, the pager links are not simply a hyper link to a page. Instead, they are associated with javascript which makes a postback to bind the current page records and thus making it not search engine friendly. A link is search engine friendly if it has a target page associated with it through href property. Search engines will automatically reach the target page and will index those pages in this case. Moving forward, in this article we will provide custom paging for GridView control that are search engine friendly. Additionally, we will also provide jump to page feature using dropdownlist control for the GridView control.
