A standard 404 page is better than nothing, although a custom page is better for several reasons. On the one hand, you can be sure that visitors will receive an accurate HTTP status code: for example, if the requested content is no longer available on the site, it should be sent with the message “410 Gone”. The visitor then knows that this content has been permanently removed.
You can also provide a specially crafted error page with associated links (that is, links to your home page or subpages that match content with what the visitor originally requested). You can even add search functionality to your website. By taking these additional steps and offering incentives, you can prevent visitors from leaving your website as soon as they see the 404 code.
Even with a creative 404 message, it can be seen that visitors are more forgiving. Sure, they’ll be disappointed if they can’t find the promised content, but an original or funny 404 page can make up for that. If done correctly, error pages havet some potential.
Make sure the design of the error message matches the style of your website and that you already have the foundation for a good 404 error page. Hopefully, if you use a fun and easy way to tell visitors that your content isn’t working, you’ll get smile and they will not be angry.
