  6. Ryansays:

    Cute 404 pages might fit some circumstances but be considerate of the fact that the user was on his way to do something and encountered this page. A 404 error page should acknowledge the error, accept blame, and offer help in solving the problem. The user isn`t just killing time looking for cute pages, they`re trying to accomplish a goal.

    These 404 error pages are an opportunity to showcase some creativity and get the user on your side.
