A “404″ page is the page a visitor to your website/blog sees if they try to visit a page that does not exist. For instance: http://inventblog.com/ 1234234213.
Most websites have a boring 404 page that merely says “page not found, sorry.” Sadly, that rarely helps your visitor find what they were looking for.
Why not do what Google recommends and “Make your 404 pages more useful” by installing a simple script on your 404 page that includes a Google search widget, a widget helps your visitors find what it was they were looking for? It’s too simple to not do.
Dennis Kennedy has announced this year’s Blawgies (awards he gives out every year for what he considers exceptional blogs). Amazingly, The Invent Blog was listed as one of the runners up for the “Practice Specific” blog (Internet Cases (a blog I read daily) won). I’m truly honored, but know that there are dozens (if not hundreds) of other blogs that I would have voted for ahead of mine. For instance, many of the blogs on my “IP Blogroll.”
Matt Buchanan over at the Promote the Progress Blog has added two new patent caselaw RSS feeds that include overview information for the latest patent opinions alongside a series of links that provide one click access to the opinion-related tools on his website, making it easy to explore the reviews you determine warrant more attention. You can even subscribe by email. Very cool! Link: http://promotetheprogress.com/feeds/
