100+ Creative and Funny 404 Error Pages

Not very much, but it is important to have a 404 error page on a website for SEO as well as reader’s perspective. In most cases, it is not your fault when user found any broken page, but still providing useful data in 404 pages is a healthy idea.

Ideally, a good 404 error page

  • Tells reader that the page they are looking for is not found (in understandable language)
  • Has a search box
  • Has front page and category links
  • Has same look and feel as the rest of the website
  • Returns an actual 404 HTTP status code to all crawlers in order to prevent it from indexing on search engines.

However, landing on broken link is a pain for visitors and but few well designed, creative and funny kind of 404 error pages sweetens the pill. So, if you don’t have any 404 error page on your website to cover up the broken links, you should probably start designing one. And because it is a standard HTML page you can customize it any way you want.

The internet is full of creative webmasters. Below you will find out, how they used their creativity while designing a 404 error page. Enjoy the tons of errors!!

Note: Don’t be surprised if the current broken page of any given website doesn’t match with our list. Few administrators like to change their 404 page frequently.
