You want to do some online shopping so you bring up your
favourites and click on the entry you
want to go to. But, when you get to where the site is supposed to
be located, you find out it's not
there anymore. Instead you get a 404 Error.
What is a 404 Error and how can I avoid them?
A 404 Error means that a page is not found. It could be that the
Web site doesn't exist anymore.
But, more than likely it means that a particular page is no
longer available. There is nothing you
can do to avoid 404 Errors, but there is something Web developers
can do to ensure this does not
happen to potential site visitors.
It is important to first understand how this happens. In the
process of marketing your Web site
online, a developer will submit one or more of your site pages to
the various search engines.
Typically, the home page (called index page) is the most
frequently submitted page. However,
through the process of evaluating page relevancy, other pages may
also be submitted. The search
engines will then send a spider out to index your page. Sometimes
the spider will travel further
down your site and index more than just your main page. As well,
a spider can get to you by
means of a link from another Web site. Even if your site is not
submitted to the search engines,
these spiders (who crawl the Web) can come upon your site and
index your pages.
When your pages have been successfully submitted to the search
engines, you may still have
further changes to make to your site. For example, you might
change a page directory, or take the
page down completely and add another one in its place. Or, you
may rename a page, for
example, the "Contact Us" page and simply call it "Contact."
Then when someone goes to a search engine to find a particular
item and they search for
something (a keyword) that has to do with your business the page
that the search engine pulls up
could be the one from your site that you've recently taken down,
changed the directory of or
renamed. The search engine may not have sent another spider to
your site since your last update
so it thinks that the page is still available. When they click on
it, guess what happens? They're
given a 404 Error! This can also happen if someone has bookmarked
a particular page on your
