Detected Missing Pages

Here you can see which pages that were accessed from your customers and are currently returning error 404.

404 is a server response code, which indicates that the page does not exist on the given server. If you have customers which are regularly visiting non-existing pages on your store, you can use the functionality here to redirect them to another page, which has actual content on it.

How to set up a new redirect?

In order to set up a new redirect, you just have to click on the "Create Redirect" button for the given missing page.

Here you can URL redirects to non-existing pages (404 error pages) in your store.

The redirects are with a status of 301, which will also give information to the search engines that there was a redirect to a new page, which has content. This should improve your rankings in the SERP because the search engines should start indexing the new page instead of the old one.
