jQuery Pagination plugins are scripts that you can integrate on your WordPress website to split pages and posts into several pages. Basically, there are two ways that website pagination can be done. Either by using a plugin that divides the data into several pages after it is loaded into the page, or by using a server-side pagination where the necessary amount of data is extracted from the database and then loaded on the pages. Pagination can be a good way to get more page views on your website and this way also improve the bounce rate.
