Default Better way of handing paging

We're trying to figure a better way of handling paging so that the urls picked up by the engines and users are friendly. Right now the main pages are friendly, the subpages end up having the variables at the end which is neither logical to the user or easy to remember. All of the first pages are friendly but the further you get into the categories the worse they get as you can see here on the 5th totes page. Is there an example that can be followed for ordering these pages logically such as catname-page2. etc?

Search for topics on "url re-writing". The idea being that the "public" url is ".../catname-page5.aspx" but it gets translated at runtime to something different like ".../showcat.aspx?cat=catname&page=5" some whatever you want.
