How to Install 404 Error Page with Search Form

Hello and Welcome to GetWebInfo.Com. Here on this post you can be able to find out Latest Article is about 404 Error Page with Search Form. This is one of the requirements for good blog navigation is to provide clear goals and choices when visitors are on a page on your blog. Similarly the 404 error page.

Error 404 Page is a page that visitor will see when trying to open a page that is not on your blog, it could be because the page has been deleted the link is broken or the visitor typed the URL address incorrectly. There are three reasons that with my opinion so i feel better if i use the custom 404 error page instead of using the 404 error page provided by blogspot.

  1. The information submitted is not informative because it only reads "Sorry, the page you are looking for in this blog does not exist." so that the impression feels so boring and uninteresting.
  2. This page appears only in the main body section and still displays the header, sidebar and footer. This can be an obstacle for those of you who have become an AdSense publisher and have placed ads outside the main body. So when an error page 404 appears then the ad will still appear and this is one of the things that is not recommended for advertisers to display ads on that page.
  3. With the custom Error 404 page we can provide clearer information, provide search options or provide directions for visitors to the home page. That way every visitor who comes either from search engines or referrals, can still enter and visit our blog.
