    My 404 page is up & running now - will I see any difference?


    I used to have 50% 404 errors and now I got a custome 404 page. Do you think it'll influance my SEO efforts?

    I will not have any 404 pages on my website because that affect that page rankings..

    What i will do is redirect all the broken links to a page that is working, this way you can still get the traffic from the 404 pages and still have those pages rank on google, becuase google dont link to display 404 error pages, so what he will do is not show them at all on the rankings.
    I am a content scrapper. If you need to obtain and process big data, pm me.
    I have a multi-threaded spider that runs on several ec2 instances.
    I have been crawling twitter, and other big guys for a while. Outputs: SQL, XML, CSV, MYSQL, TXT

    What?!
    "google dont link to display 404 error pages" - Since when? Why not?
    I thought it should make perfect sense to google. I'm taking care of my users.

    Now, how can I redirect all my broken links to a page that is working? I'm not sure I got this one.

    You say that my 404 page will HURT my SEO?
