404 error codes.

Why am I seeing a 404 error message?

It is most common to see a 404 error page when you requested a page or media images via your browser which does not exist. This does not always mean that the site visitor has done something wrong – it could be that the server could not process the request.

If you are the webmaster there is a couple of things you could do.

  1. Start investigating the error by looking if the file or images requested is still on the server.
  2. Have you moved the file or renamed it? –
  3. You can point the broken link to useful content by adding a redirect on the link.
  4. Or take the opportunity and monetize the 404 page.
