Custom 404 Error Pages Tip


Do you have a custom 404 error page that only says the page was not found and gives a link at the bottom? Well, today I will give you a great tip that has worked for me over the years. You will lose fewer visitors than with a plain 404 error page and be able to increase your earnings.
