How to Eliminate 404 Page’s
Define 404: A 404 error means “not found”. This is usually the page you get when you make a mistake spelling page name in a site, or if the page is deleted or moved. The problem is that the standard 404 page is ugly and unhelpful.
If your website has too many 404 Errors floating around in the search engines a few things may happen:
- Your website popularity may be harm.
- Your website rankings are affected.
- Your website may be penalized
- Your website may be banned from the index
Eliminate 404 Page’s from Google’s index:
- Set Up In Google Webmaster Tools
- Finding your 404-error pages
- Killing your 404-error pages
Recommended Solution: You can redirect [404 error pages/ not found pages] using 301 redirect to home page. In this case visitors and Google see your home page instead of error page. Its a way and its search engine and Google friendly too.
