How To Use A Custom 404 Page

Computing : Online Marketing

When people come to a page on your site that does not exist or has never existed, then they can get the dreaded boring 404 page not found page.

Most people when they see this will just leave the site and not come back.

But what you want to do is to convert those people to look at other pages on your site and perhaps even try to find that content somewhere else on your site.

This is where a much more friendly custom 404 page can come in and can point people in the right direction to find the content that they are really after.

All you need to do is create your custom page then add a line to your .htaccess to point people who would get a generic 404 error to this page - lots of places on the net show how to do this or check out the page on this at Tell Me How with regard how to create a custom 404 error page.
