Have you ever been on a website navigating through the pages to search for the content you’re looking for to be met with a 404 error message? It can be very frustrating to click on a link or page to find out that the information you need isn’t there. When you are met with a 404 error message on a website it means the link to that page or content is broken.
When a user is met with a 404 error message the first thing they will do is click out of the website entirely. They will then go back to the search engines and run their search again. Knowing your site didn’t have the information they were looking for they then click on your competitor’s site to get the information they need.
Check your website daily to ensure that on the user end you have no broken links or broken pages. The main point in having a website is to provide resources to the end users on the specific content they were searching for. You do not want to deter your users from looking elsewhere. Your website is your branding. If it is down, then your business is down.
