To go back one page, you can use Alt + Left arrow key and similarly to forward one page, you can use Alt + right arrow key. This key combination for moving forward and backwards, works on all browsers and on all sites.

These keyboard shortcuts work perfectly fine on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. However, Internet Explorer 8 has some problems with these. Note that, these keyboard shortcuts doesn’t work in new Orkut.
