Webmaster Tools: 404 Redirection
There is a great way to fix the pages on your site that have 404 errors.
The first thing you have to do is find out which pages lead to 404 errors and the best way to do that is to use your Google Webmaster tools.
While it does not do much for page rank or anything like that, fixing a web page that leads nowhere does contribute to a better user experience.
And we all know how important that is to Google and everyone involved!
So the first thing you do is log into your Webmaster Tools account and go to the main dashboard.
In the left hand sidebar, Click the Crawl link to display the dropdown menu and select t he link for Crawl errors and click it.
This will display the Current Status page and all the relevant information will be ready for you to see.
From here you can select to see the pages with 404 errors on your site, your mobile device and more.
Once you know what the pages are to be redirected, you want to go to your WordPress site and add the plugin “Redirections”.
When you activate it you will see it offers a tool that sets up the process to put the url for the page with the 404 error in one field.
And then also has a target field for the destination url to which you will send the redirect.
All this is easy to learn by watching the video, so go have a look and you will be ready to do your 404 repairs in a matter of minutes.
As always give the this information a “Like”,”Google +”,”Tweet”,”Pin”,”Stumble” or whatever your favorite social media choice is.
Many thanks and Stay well.
