I created a site to replace my clients old worpress site made by someone else.
I had to use their hosting company … usually I use Chillidog so Greg helps me!
My problem is that I did not make a 404 error page.
I deleted the old files from the server. I thought that Google would have forgotten them by now and replaced with my new site. But now when I Google the clients name a list of pages come up which includes old and new … so looks terrible. I need to sort this ASAP so client doesnt see old dead links to their business.
Is there an easy way to make a 404 page work? Or does it depend on the hosting co?
Is it something I can ask the hosting company to help with? Or is there a magic 404 plugin I can use!?
THANKS for any advice
