Have you ever come across this message when clicking through a blog:
Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist.
That is the standard Blogger error message. Go ahead, give it a go. Click on one of your post titles and then remove a portion out of the address and try to go there. Error message, right?
Blogger has now given us the ability to create our own. Take a look at mine:
I used an image for mine and included the same text in an alt=” ” field in case the image doesn’t load for some reason.
Want to add your own error message? If you are using the new Interface click on Settings, Search Preferences. Under Errors and Redirections click EDIT beside CUSTOM PAGE NOT FOUND. Type in your message and click save!
NEW BLOGGER SEO OPTION:
Since you are already on the Search Preferences page, go ahead and click YES next to Enable Search Description and type up a brief description on what your blog is. This text will appear under your blog name in search engines from now on. It is that brief descriptor that lets people make the decision on whether your site is the place they want to visit, as well as helps with search engine optimization (SEO) – find out more about it here.
