Your website visitors see a 404 page or get a ‘page not found’ error when they click on a link to a page which doesn’t exist.
A customized 404 page with a personal message, an image, clear instructions on finding the right information and perhaps a list of popular pages/categories is not only more helpful but decreased the chances of someone giving up and deciding to try a different website.
This is especially important if you have moved your site to WordPress resulting in changes to your urls or have changed your permalink structure recently.
