    Hello ! I was wondering ...is any way to redirect all the 404 errors I receive on my website to my homepage ? I mention that I have an wordpress website ! I have some tags from erased posts that are indexed in google and if anyone click them receives 404 error ! Instead 404 errors appearing I want to automaticly send to my home page or whatever page I want ! Is this possible ?

    if you want you can also use .htaccess:
    ErrorDocument 404 /page/to/show.html

    I just do auto 301's via .htaccess, which works fine. The above mentioned plugin probably does about the same.

    this is super easy to do- just create a 301 redirect on the 404.php page within wordpress.

    no dirty plugings to install

    Also 404 Redirection does the same thing.

    Why use a plugin when you can do it through htaccess and not worrying about ever having an issue. Link Juice Keeper hasn't been updated in so long, it could potentially cause problems at any time.

    Yes, install wp redirect plugin and find the 404 urls from your web-master tool or from your c panel after that put them in the plugin and point them on the homepage. Easiest and simple way no coding required.
