Getting Lost Doesn’t Have to be Boring

You’ve been there, just cruising along on a website, and bam! You hit a brick wall. The dreaded “404 Page Not Found” error. Damn, what a crappy website!

Wait, how do you know that visitors to YOUR website aren’t hitting that same brick wall? Well you don’t. It could be an issue with a missing or moved page, or it might not even be an issue with your website, it could be as simple as your visitor manually mistyping in a page. It’s inevitable, so why not have some fun with it?

Fun with 404’s

You can pretty much configure your web server to serve up a custom 404 error page, so why play it straight? Look, you’ve already pissed off your visitor, why not show some creativity and antagonize them a little more? A fun 404 Error page doesn’t take a lot of expertise, but it does take some inspiration…and a sense of humor. Take a look at a few of my favorites, and get your web developer to work….and have some fun!
