Google Blogger – 404 Page Error Redirection

TGH Profile Image 512x512

If you use Google Blogger and you are fed up of missing out on page hits because of 404 errors, then there is a very simple way that you can redirect any of these page mis-directions to another page of your choosing on your blog.

To do this, you should login to your Blogger control panel and click on the Settings and then Search preferences:

Then under Errors and redirections section, click the Edit button for “Custom Page Not Found”, you should then enter the following code:

 <h1>Oops 404!</h1>  
<br><b>The page you are looking for may have been renamed or does not exist in this server.</b>
<br><br><b>You will be redirected to homepage shortly.</b>
<script>
blogger_redirect = setTimeout(function() { location.pathname= "/" }, 1000);
</script>

You should then save this and it will now return any 404 pages to the homepage of your blog after just 1 second. You can change the “location.pathname= “/”” to a different page and change the timeout of 1000 to suit your needs.
