Plugin Advice: No Search Results Redirect (1 post)

    I have been trying to find a way to redirect when a site search returns no results.

    Here is my site: http://eastcountyobits.com

    People come to my site looking for specific names. They have always had trouble searching for names using the search box. I was able to change the wording within the search box from "Search..." to "Last Name Search..." Not only are they having better success searching only last names, more people are using the search function.

    Even so, many people are searching last names and coming up empty as they are misspelling, or don't know how to spell the last name. Too many are just leaving the site, even though the person they are looking for is featured on the site.

    This is why I have created a custom "Name not Found" page that I think would help in these cases: http://eastcountyobits.com/404-name-not-found/

    I have tried many redirect plugins with no success. I've learned that these are not true 404 errors, and are not picked up by 404 re-direct plugins.

    Any help in figuring out how to redirect to this page would be much appreciated.
