500 Creative 404 Error Pages

Posted on by in Blog

A few months ago I wrote a short article showing how you can create a 404 error page in WordPress.

The 404 error message is given by servers when a page is not found. There are many reasons why a visitor would visit an incorrect page:

  • The page may have been there before but has since been deleted (but is still linked from search engines and other websites)
  • Another person on the web may have linked to the wrong URL
  • The visitor may have entered an incorrect URL

Unfortunately, it is inevitable that people will visit pages on your which no longer exist (or never did). The quickest way to check this yourself is through a service such as Google Webmaster Tools (via ‘Diagnostics’ and then ‘Crawl Errors’).

Due to this, it is very important that your website has a good 404 error page so that visitors stay on your website and find what they are looking for. A basic page or one which is confusing would make the visitor click the back button in their browser and look elsewhere.

What constitutes a good 404 page is a matter of preference. The majority of 404 pages I like have a good mixture of humour and/or a good explanation for the visitor about why they are on that page.

Today I will be showing you 500 creative 404 error pages – ranging from simple descriptive error messages to creative and humorous ones. I’m sure the list will help inspire you when creating your own custom 404 page.

Good luck,

Kevin

Here’s my two first 404 page designs.

Which 404 page are you referring to?

Just an update

Comment by Kelvin says:

I definitely think this is one of the more different and brilliant takes on a 404 page:

Comment by Kevin Muldoon says:

Thanks Tobias. I’ve never came across that before. I’ll post about that tomorrow :)

Comment by Tobias says:

Wauw, that are a lot of 404 pages and great ones!

Making all those screenshots must have been quite the work. Perhaps you already know but BM Shots is a plugin that makes use of WordPress api for automatically creating screenshots of web pages. I would recommend checking it out, it can save you a ton of time if you plan on making another list like this :)

Comment by Tom | Oral Answers says:

Thanks for your feedback, Kevin. awStats says I have thousands of hits that return a 404 error, so hopefully this will help capture some of that traffic!

Comment by Kevin Muldoon says:

You’re more than welcome :)

Comment by Kevin Muldoon says:

I like it Tom. It has a good picture and explains to the visitor why they are getting that message. Plus you point them towards other content :)

Comment by Asif says:

Wow Kevin really a lengthy post. you took a lot of time in doing a research and choosing the best ones for us.
Thanks once again.

Comment by Tom | Oral Answers says:

Alright! I finished it. I tried to relate it to the dental theme of my blog.

Please let me know what you all think of it!

You can find it here:

http://www.OralAnswers.com/404

or just type any random string of numbers or digits in place of the 404 :-)

Comment by Kevin Muldoon says:

Glad you liked the post guys. :)

Comment by Phil says:

Awesome Post. I gotta say, I love the Death Cartoon one. Hehe Very nice.

Comment by George Serradinho says:

Wow, there are some great 404 error pages. I’ve been thinking of changing my 404 page on my blog and have a few ideas. Hope to have that done soon.

Comment by Kevin Muldoon says:

Thanks Tom. Glad you liked the post.

Actually, I was planning on adding 1,000 error pages. However, I had a guest post publishing on daily blog tips today so I thought it was best to take advantage of the extra incoming traffic and publish it early.

I can always do a follow up post with 500 more images at a later date.

Remember to post a link to your 404 page in the comment area :)

I’m sure many, like myself, would be happy to give our opinion on it.

Kevin

Comment by Tom | Oral Answers says:

You’ve inspired me, Kevin. If you can take 500 screen shots of 404 pages and blog about them, then I can create a custom 404 page. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while but haven’t had the time.

When you got to the 404th screen shot, were you tempted to just call the article “404 Creative 404 Error Pages”?

Great article!

Comment by Garth says:

Ha..ha….that comic by Open End Adventure is funny though. I am thinking to borrow some from the above list but I guess I need permission from the owner first?

Comment by Kevin Muldoon says:

It’s perhaps better to contact them in advance.

You could perhaps use it just now and include a credit note saying the image was from them but that might send visitors which are already lost to the wrong site.
