404 to Start
Terrible for SEO (3 posts)

    Redirecting a 404 page to the start page is an SEO disaster. Google wants the 404 page to be there, but be useful to the user( ie. you can add a search box, categories on your site, etc.; ie tips to help the user find what they were looking for). But redirecting to the start page is a no-no.

    It redirects to a page of choice... Apparently your one star is based on the plugin's title only...

    That must have been included in an update since I wrote this. At the time of writing, the default was the start page. Either way, a problem that needed to be addressed. Next up: change the misleading plugin title!
