An HTTP 404 Error means that the browser was able to communicate with a website's server, but that the specific page it requested could not be found. BigTree records all 404 errors that may occur for your users. You can view the 404 Report in the Vitals & Statistics section of the BigTree Admin Dashboard, and set up 301 redirects if you so choose.
