Do you know what's the 2ND MOST VISITED page on your web site?

This may surprise you. But in my consulting work the error
page is the second most visited web page on many of the web
sites that I've seen!

Anywhere between 10% and 40% of your page hits could fall on
your error page.

SCARY ISN'T IT!

Especially if you're not taking full advantage of this
valuable page.

This could turn out to be a huge number of EXISTING PAGE VIEWS
that you're missing out on. You could be using this traffic to
generate more ACTION and SALES on your site.

I'm going to show you exactly how to take advantage of this
little gem of a page - your error page.

1) The first thing to do is to check if you have an error page
already set up on your web site.

Some hosting services will display their own default error
page on your web site. YOU DON'T WANT THIS. You want to have
your own error page so you can harness those EXTRA eyeballs.

Just type in your web site domain name followed by a fake web
page, or even some garbage text. This will show you what your
users experience when they hit your error page.

If your get a blank page or your hosting service provider
error page comes up then contact them. Ask them (nicely) to
set up your error page to point to a page of your choice. This
is a fairly simple thing for them to do.

I like to keep the name of my error page simple. For example,
the error page for MakingClicks is:

http://www.makingclicks.com/error/error.html.

2) The second thing to do is to check your page hits stats.
This will give you an idea of how frequently your error page
is being viewed by your visitors.

If your error page is being viewed a huge number of times..

then..

PANIC!..

No, you don't really have to panic. It doesn't necessarily
mean that you have lots of broken links in your site. Web
users are becoming more web savvy and will play around with
the url in the address box on their browser.

But you can take advantage of this. Check out my error page at
MakingClicks.com.

Just click http://www.makingclicks.com/anything.html.
This page doesn't actually exist. You will be forwarded to my
default error page.

with our error page we've basically assumed that either the
user is LOST or they can't FIND what they're looking for. In
either case we've given them a way to get back to the home
page, contact us or find what they want elsewhere - at our
affiliate partners web sites!

3) FINALLY,

if you consider that your ERROR PAGE could be the MOST VISITED
PAGE on your site. You REALLY want to make the most of it.

Don't treat it as an embarrassment and try to forget it.

Here are some things you can do with your error page:

- put a link to your homepage

- put your web site search on this page

- put a contact us form or survey to ask people what they want
from you site

- exchange error page links with other web masters within the
topic of your web site

- promote your affiliates: your visitors may have given up on
finding what they want on your site anyway.

The possibilities are endlessFeature Articles, it's almost like having a
SECOND HOME PAGE!

Wishing you success.
