My 404 Error Page

» Posted by on Jul 18, 2011 in General, Inspiration, Personal, Web Design | 0 comments

Surely you are already familiar with 404 error pages. If you are not, an error page (usually called 404 or not found) is a page that doesn’t exist. Any moved linked, broken linked or mistyped url can take us to a not found 404 page.
By default error messages are not very helpful. They only tell us that the page was not found.

The good thing is that we can customize our own error page to give solutions and options to our visitors. If servers can usually be configured to display your own customized error page, shouldn’t we take advantage of this benefit?

A good design error page will make our visitor stay in our site or come back, a traditional error page can make our visitor feel lost. Not everybody understands a traditional error page and they might think it is a failure and lose trust in your site.

If you still don’t have an Error 404 page on your website or blog maybe this showcase can inspire you to create your first one. They surely inspired me to make my own

Don’t forget to share your own 404 error page design in the comments below!
