404 pages

Let’s chat about something we’ve all experienced at some point – the infamous 404 pages! You know, those little digital gremlins pop up when you’re exploring a website and suddenly, ‘Page Not Found’. They might be frustrating, but remember, they’re not there to ruin your day. They’re vital to web navigation, letting us know when a link is broken or a page has been moved. So, let’s hear your thoughts! Do you have any funny or memorable stories about coming across 404 pages? Or any creative ones you’ve seen? Drop them in the comments below!

But you will get help from LinkWhisper!

Please do not be a drop-and-run participant.  Your Vroom Vroom Team humbly ask and would truly appreciate your help in that you at a minimum visit the link prior to where you link up.  Together, let's keep this creative community growing!

Adding Value to our Senior Salon Pit Stop Link Party:–

  • For every post (Unlimited sharing limit), you share, please comment on someone else’s post. Make their day a bit brighter.
  • Posts can be on any subject that is family-friendly (All niches welcome).
  • Posts with direct sales, shops, or affiliates must contain relevant post content. 
  • If you have your link-up party, you are allowed to share it, but that may not qualify for the top 15 posts of the previous week, but it will most certainly help you as others will see your link-up.
  • As mentioned, we would appreciate your support by showcasing our Senior Salon Pit Stop Vroom Vroom Linkup image in your weekly blog posts. (See code below).

We know that you're busy, but please when you do take the time to drop your own links, we respectfully ask 

- for you to visit one another
- drop a meaningful comment
- share those lovely posts on your own Social Media.  

Please do not drop your links and run, that's not fair to the others.  We are all here to help one another and gain more exposure and we can only thrive once we all play a fair game!  Thank you for your support and help!  

Congratulations to our three podium winners!

We are open each Monday as of 2 am through to Saturday at 2 pm
(Vancouver BC Canadian time).
This should provide you with sufficient time to share your own links and visit others!

It will be awesome when you have been featured to add the HTML text to your featured post. It’s obviously not compulsory but it will be immensely appreciated. Your Senior Salon Pit Stop Vroom Vroom Linkup Crew wishes to thank you in advance.

The Friendly Guide to 404 Pages: What You Need to Know


Today, we’re going to delve into the fascinating world of 404 pages. Don’t worry if you’ve never heard of them before; we’ve got you covered. In this friendly guide, we’ll explain what a 404 page is, explore its pros and cons, offer tips to avoid encountering it, discuss how to resolve it, and address its impact on your blog’s ranking. So, let’s jump right in!

What is a 404 Page? A 404 page, also known as an error page or “Page Not Found” page, is what you encounter when you try to access a web page that doesn’t exist. It’s like reaching a dead end while navigating a website. Instead of displaying the intended content, the 404 page informs visitors that the requested page could not be found.

The Pros and Cons of 404 Pages: Pros:

  1. User-friendly: 404 pages provide a clear indication that something went wrong, preventing confusion for visitors.
  2. Branding opportunity: You can use creative and engaging 404 pages to enhance your brand’s personality and leave a positive impression on users, even when they encounter errors.
  3. Error tracking: By monitoring 404 error logs, you can gain insights into broken links or pages, enabling you to fix them and improve user experience.


  1. Negative user experience: If not handled properly, encountering a 404 page can frustrate users, leading to a potential loss of engagement or conversion.
  2. Lost opportunities: Visitors who encounter 404 errors may not have the patience to explore your site further, missing out on valuable content or potential conversions.

How to Avoid 404 Errors:

  1. Consistent internal linking: Ensure your website has a solid internal linking structure to minimize broken links. Regularly check and update links as needed.
  2. Use redirect rules: When you move or delete content, set up proper redirects to guide users and search engines to the new page.
  3. Conduct regular site audits: Employ tools that scan your website for broken links, such as URL crawlers or broken link checkers.

Resolving 404 Errors:

  1. Custom 404 page: Create a helpful, informative, and visually appealing 404 page that suggests alternative navigation options or provides a search bar to assist users in finding what they’re looking for.
  2. Redirects: For deleted or moved pages, set up 301 redirects to direct users and search engines to relevant content or the new URL.
  3. Fixing broken links: Identify broken links through webmaster tools or plugins, and update or remove them accordingly.

Impact on Blog Ranking:

In general, a few isolated 404 errors won’t significantly impact your blog’s ranking. However, if you have numerous broken links or a high volume of 404 errors, it can negatively affect your SEO efforts. Search engines may interpret these errors as a sign of poor website maintenance and user experience. Regularly monitor and fix broken links to maintain a healthy ranking.


404 pages might seem like a nuisance, but when handled correctly, they can be turned into an opportunity to engage and assist your visitors. By understanding what a 404 page is, learning how to avoid and resolve it, and keeping an eye on your website’s overall health, you can create a positive user experience and maintain a healthy online presence. Good luck, and may your visitors rarely encounter the elusive 404 page!
