How to Remove 404 Broken Links Errors Completely from Web

Posted by Pramod Sharma
Whenever you remove any page from your website, whenever a user enters the Web page of your website such that doesn't exist at all, then that website header displays the 404 error. So what really is It.? 404 is the code which gets displayed whenever the Web doesn't have the page due to removal or errors. People also call it broken links and it really isn't a big problem at all.


Everybody among us always have plenty of such types of errors and broken links and usually they don't affect a blog or site in term ofseo if the numbers are not too high, if it is, then you need to worry little as it could lead you to harm by search engine.

 So if your blog has high number of 404 errors pages then this post is for you as I would be talking about how you can completely remove them from Web so that from search engine as well your readers don't have to get in trouble.

Methods to detect 404 error pages:

There is only one and best way to detect how many 404 errors do your blog has and that tool is Google official Google webmaster tool. This is one of the feature I had shared in my past post where I gave you the reasons to use webmasters tool.

Simply adding your blog to webmaster tool gives you full detail about how many and what are the pages which are returning this code. Although if you are on WordPress you can have many plug-ins like broken linkchecker this does the job perfectly. But for BlogSpot users the only way to check and correct 404 is webmasters tool.

  • Here are the screenshot which shows you how you can figure out your number of broken links as well as other server errors and robot.txt file errors.

 remove 404 error

Simple ways to fix 404 errors

If we talk about simple ways that means a little work to get broken link fix.

For WordPress users again I would suggest broken link checker tool as it also can fix and remove not found pages easily, but for BlogSpot users this is also easy as you would be getting it in your blogger dashboard.Here are simple steps to follow:

  • Login to blogger account and from dashboard go to settings and then search preferences.
  • Now look at These two options Custom Page Not Found and Custom Redirects options.Give you the ability to handle broken links easily.
remove 404 error

1. In Custom Page Not Found:


In first one you can display the message like giving a homepage URL and ask your reader to go back to homepage and have look at similar articles and message can be anything according you.

 2. Custom Redirects options

More useful I would say the second one which is custom redirect which allows you to redirect your error page to any other working page or simply a homepage. By this way whenever a reader lands at 404 error page he will be quickly redirected automatically to homepage of the page you had entered their to be redirected. 
remove 404 error
  • Thus one seems to be easy and use fill as you would not be going to lose the reader. But there is also an disadvantage of using this custom redirect.
  • If you have hundreds such pages then it could cause you little trouble.
  • And other is that Google may think it as a spam activity as you are redirecting hundreds of pages to a same page.


How to know which and how many links are returning 404?


Before this you would need to know what pages are returning 404 error. Here are the steps to find out broken links:

  • Open your webmaster tool account and click on errors as shown in screenshot. 

remove 404 error
  • Now click on 404 error and a list of all the pages and link would be displayed which are returning 404 code error.
  • So click on download and it saves these to your excel file.

To completely remove 404 broken links from search results:



The above methods were simply redirecting or giving other option to reader, but what if you want to completely remove broken links from Google search results as well? So here is the solution to do so:
  • Removing broken links completely from search results is not a difficult task at all, we can easily remove them by using Google webmaster tool removal request.

We completely remove 404 broken links from search results by using webmaster tool.

  • For this sign in to webmaster tool and click on the site or blog you want to optimize.
  • Now go to Google index at left most side and then click remove URL.
remove 404 error

  • After that a new page will be open which would ask you to create new URL removal request. 


  • Click on new removal request and enter your broken link URL which you had previously stored in your excel file.
  • Now copy links from excel file which you already downloaded previously, one by one and paste it in new removal request and click submit. After which it would ask you to completely remove from index or catch and click on OK as shown in screen shot.
remove 404 error

After few hours your broken links will be no more present on Web and will never disappoint your organic traffic. But again for users having large number of broken links would need to worry a little as they need a bit high Hard work to remove them only if you are a BlogSpot user otherwise on WordPress plugins makes things quite simple.If you have any questions, feel free to ask me in the comments below and if are aware of any other simpler tool to remove broken links then share with us in the comments below.You can join me on Google plus.

InkThemes Review - Best & Easy To Use WordPress Themes

Posted by Pramod Sharma

When I first started using WordPress, I thought of using free theme as I used to do on BlogSpot. After trying hard to find number of free themes out there, I realized that something is missing in my design and that is costing me in increased bounce rate and ultimately my traffic.

So I came across InkThemes, one of the established premium WordPress themes site which offer awesome themes covering almost every genre .InkThemes recently celebrated its 3rd birthday and with total redesign it Surpassed 23000 users mark. One of the reasons to choose InkTheme was its trail version facility by which you can check all the features.

So I chose to try one trial theme as at that time I was not willing to spend anything on themes.So Here in this review I will be sharing what I loved about them.




Why not to choose free Themes?

Better SEO, security, continues updates, better support are few features that makes premium theme worth the money over free themes. If you are using free WordPress theme here are some reasons that are harming your site.
  • Not SEO-optimized
  • Malicious scripts included may get your site hacked
  • Has Encrypted credit Links
  • Lack important features like responsive, ad ready and custom inbuilt widgets
  • No support .
  • Cause compatibility problems

Some unique feature that makes InkThemes different from other themes:

One of the reasons I recommended InkTheme is its one click install feature. This means that you can install your theme within a minute without getting into confusing part which requires hours of configuration. Moreover you do have many options to manually customize your theme according to your need.
So if you don't want any hectic of configuring your theme then InkTheme is for you.

Best Support

When it comes to costumer support InkTheme is far better than many other WordPress theme providers. Each and every question has best explained answers which clears almost all doubts of a new customer. As I already said theme support is one of the reasons to choose premium theme over free ones, this lets you to ask as many as question as you want.

With support forum it is even easier to go through all the questions and look for those you wanted to look for. They would have been already answered which will be time saving for you. Support staff if very active and helpful and they always answer your question with full detail and information.

Responsive design:

People around the globe are switching to different devices; hence it is the need of time that our website should operate smoothly with all devices. Responsive design of InkTheme templates full fills this need as all the theses are fully responsive, so that you never miss a single mobile user. In case you don't want to waste your time in designing separate mobile friendly version of your site then InkTheme is the best choice available which does it for you automatically.

Features of InkThemes:


  • A large collection of themes from almost every genre
  • Lifetime support for your theme.

  • Mobile friendly and responsive
  • Frequent theme updates
  • Trial theme available

Pricing and Plans:

  • Price per Theme: $59
  • Price for All Themes: $147 (Price per theme=$3.19)
