Other Notes

Future Awesomeness

The goal of this plugin is to boost your sites SEO by telling search engines to ignore your error pages, with the focus on human users to increase people staying on your site and being able to find what they were originally looking for on your site. Because I am obsessed with fast web pages, many various speed/efficiency improvements are also on the horizon.

Another feature that I am using with beta versions of this plugin, is tracking information for you to go over at your leisure, to fix recurring problems. The information is collected is the requested url that wasnt found, the referring url that contains the invalid link.

The reason I didnt include it in this release is because for sites like AskApache with a very high volume of traffic (and thus 404 requests) this feature can create a bottleneck and slow down or freeze a blog if thousands of 404 errors are being requested and saved to the database. This could also very quickly be used by malicious entities as a Denial of Service attack. So I am figuring out and putting into place limits.. like once a specific requested url resulting in a not found error has been requested 100x in a day, an email is sent to the blog administrator. But to prevent Email DoS and similar problems with the number and interval of emails allowed by your email provider other considerations on limits need to be examined.
