Pagination help - Laravel

I have a laravel backend (api.site.com) and a Nuxt front end (site.com)

I have a pagination page set up and functionality works except the user leaves page and goes back they are back to pagination page 1 since nothing in the url changes

The pagination links from Laravel are as it should be all go to the api.site.com/users?page=5 so it does all the calls in the background as expected, shows the new records sets when you navigate using the
<<. < 1 2 3 4 5 > >> paginator

But i need help / understanding how to get the query / params to be referenced in the address bar so a user can return to where they were if they click on a record in the pagination results

I did google and all i found was blade templates, which is no use since i am not using blade (front and back ends are complete separate entities and know nothing about each other

Any help, insight, ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
