Redirect user from error page abc.com/widgets to a separate error page error.php and block error.php from robots file, or without any redirection show the error page content in the page abc.com/widgets. So which is the better way as per Google, SEO. Looking for your suggestions...

In your webmaster tool check crawl error and not found URL's... so how to resolve the issue

As per mine the first one is better....

Just make sure the http header has the correct status code for whatever kind of error has been detected by your server and you will have no concern.

this is what you want - preceded by a 404 status code.
if you specify error.php as the custom 404 error page in your server configuration you should only need the status code.
