    Default 404 redirects

    Hello Everyone,

    I had an important SEO question for everyone regarding 404 errors and redirects.

    I have a website that I am trying to rank in google. Shortly after having put it live, I noticed that I was ranked on the first page, however the page was bringing me randomly to a 404 page on my site..

    The webpage is using wordpress and was installed using "example" content. well.. all i needed where a few pages so i deleted alot of the pages i didnt need causing the page google was refering to read back as a 404.

    in the efforts to direct traffic to the correct homepage, I applied a 404 redirect plugin so people can get to where they would need to be.

    well now. my page is nowhere to be found. im not sure if it was the redirect causing this but its the only thing i could think of. can anyone enlighten me on the subject? thanks!

    Default Re: 404 redirects

    Nobody has any info on this?

    Anyways, I kept the redirect plugin on the site. I actually added another one. this time, instead of having a Hyperlink go directly through my affiliate link, I just direct to another page on my site that when accessed 301's it (permanent redirect) through to my affiliate link. Dont know why i did this but I saw it on another site and people seem to think masking affiliate links are important (don't blame me, look at my post count.. im new at this)

    So if im doing something HORRIBLY WRONG seo wise, please feel free to warn me

    Thank you.
