Page Navigation refers to the buttons which appear by default at the bottom of Articles in certain situations.
For example, when you link to content via a Category Blog Menu Link instead of via a Single Article Menu Link.
When you do, the Joomla! CMS will by default present buttons at the foot of each Article within the linked Category.
The buttons will be labelled Previous and Next.
Their purpose: to enable easy browsing of Articles within a Category.
They are not however very helpful to search engines or humans.
Reason: they do not indicate what is in the next or previous Article.
