Your visitors may stumble into a 404 "Not found" page on your website for a variety of reasons: A mistyped URL, or a copy-and-paste mistake Broken or truncated links on web pages or in an email message Moved or deleted content Confronted by a 404 page, they may then attempt to manually correct the URL, click the back button, or even navigate away from your site. As hinted in an earlier post for "404 week at Webmaster Central" , there are various ways to help your visitors get out of the dead-end situation. In our quest to make 404 pages more useful, we've just added a section in Webmaster Tools called "Enhance 404 pages". If you've created a custom 404 page this allows you to embed a widget in your 404 page that helps your visitors find what they're looking for by providing suggestions based on the incorrect URL.

Adding them to your web page is easy, and I’m sure you already know how this works using HTML: <!-- In its simplest form: --> <link rel = "apple-touch-icon" href = "apple-touch-icon.png" > (It’s a shame Apple didn’t just implement the standard <link rel = icon > and chose to come up with a more verbose proprietary link relation instead.) Apple iOS has supported touch icons since iOS 1.1.3.
