I'm getting a few "not found" pages on two of my sites and I found a simple redirect that seemed to work for some of these pages:
ErrorDocument 404 http://www.example.com
I was wondering if this is an SEO prudent thing to do, or if there is a better way. Also, I noticed that this redirect was not working for a bunch of the "not found" pages. These not found pages seem to be something close to the 404 error pages, but not quite. I am finding them in Google Webmaster tools and this is what I am getting:
The requested URL /example/2006/11/27/
was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
So what I am getting is some sort of regular not found error and a 404? Thanks for any comments.
