New Online Tool Helps Webmasters Squash the Dreaded 404 Page Not Found Error.

The ever changing nature of the World Wide Web pretty much guarantees that internet users will run into 404 not found error pages at some point - especially after a major rebuild when lots of page URLs have been changed. A new online tool, Errorlytics, from Accession Media, had been launched to help remedy these issues. Errorlytics, built on the Ruby on Rails platform, uses a simple process to help website owners create an error-free experience for their users.

Once you create an account and a website profile with Errorlytics, a small, unobtrusive client-side script is installed on the server that sends information on your site's 404 page not found errors back to the Errorlytics server for analysis. These scripts and plug-ins are available for Drupal, Wordpress, Java, Ruby and PHP platforms. Site webmasters, editorial teams, marketing staff, etc. can log into the Errorlytics interface to see what errors have occurred and set up "rules" as to where the visitor should be redirected to if they attempt to access a non-existent page.

Once a rule is set up, Errorlytics will continue to apply it going forward. There is no need to bother IT staff, no need to write complex regular expression rules for Apache or IIS to interpret. There's also no need to constantly return to the site and check for errors. Just subscribe to your own personal Errorlytics RSS feed and you'll get instant updates on whatever RSS reader your already use -- or via a nightly email. Errorlytics does it all, quickly and easily.

Unlike other tools, Errorlytics also has your website's search engine rankings in mind. All Errorlytics redirects default to the "search engine friendly" 301 redirect. If you just moved a lot of content around on your site, you can create many SEO friendly 301 redirects to the new pages quickly and easily with Errorlytics. Even though Errorlytics does much more to help webmasters, it's been designed to work alongside similar tools such as the 404 reporting in Google Webmaster tools.
