How to deal with 404 errors effectively.

 #   Links Added/Updated  

More website manner tips (with Keith Instone)
Various ways I deal with 404 errors on Usable Web.

  • Fixing common errors automatically (redirects)
  • Semi-automatically forwarding errors (so authors know they made a mistake in their link)
  • On the back end, every error that I have not addressed specifically creates an email to me, so it is hard for me to ignore them
