Think beyond fancy graphics and HTML links on an Error 404 page

I am a Mobile First web developer that explores concepts, designs and ideas that are innovative, unconventional and not based or limited by industry traditions!

The Error 404 Page is supposed to help website visitors that reference a web page that was not found on the web server. 404 Errors can be frustrating for website visitors, so the main purpose of a Error 404 page is to turn a potential negative user experience of encountering an error into a positive one by using HTML links to access your website content!

Every Error 404 Page should provide access to a navigation menu so that the visitor can access a valid web page however, visitors may choose to abandon the website thus increasing the website Bounce Rate.

Bounce Rate is the percentage of visitors to a particular website who navigate away from the site after viewing only one page! The rate is calculated by identifying the total number of one page visits divided by the total number of page entries to a website within any given time interval.

Actions taken by the web server when an Error 404 event is triggered

The ability to automatically display a random web page after the web server triggers an Error 404 event can help reduce the bounce rate!
