    301 inside 404


    Does anyone know if I can create a redirect 301 inside a page 404? Thanks

    Add to .htaccess

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{REQUST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule .+ http://www.site.com [L,R=301]

    RED: if already there - no need to repeat

    BLUE: edit to include your destination page

    Thanks, as usually right to the point. Do you know if this could have negative implications towards SEO? Thanks

    None... actually will enhance since volumes of 404 requests are a negative (particularly in Google).

    Keynote: with exception of the RED part that rest "SHOULD BE" after all other conditions and rewrite rules (if others are being used).
