I finally decided to write a custom 404 page since deleting almost 25k of pages in the supplimental index. I put some text and links to my homepage and my sitemap, and I know that you can't put adsense ads on error pages, but what about a search box? I see nothing in the TOS that clearly states that search boxes cannot be used on error pages, just adsense ads, buttons and image ads.
