Today we’re going to go over how to add a specific 404 error page to your WordPress site if you have Leadpages.

Leadpages has a plug in, so you can just go ahead and put it on your WordPress site. As you can see down here, it’s kind of towards the bottom. But you need to actually have a Leadpages account and you will already need to have already built a 404 page.

404 Error Page example - Tia Hain

If I go over to my Leadpages… This is the page that I went ahead and already built on my Leadpages account. This is how I have my 404 error page setup. This is what the 404 page looks like when you go to an incorrect URL on my website.

It encourages people to go ahead and download my free ebook, so I can work on getting them on my email list, and I give them lots of great info.

The only thing I don’t like about this is I can’t put a search back to somewhere on my website. Because most likely, if they have gotten the wrong page on your website, they were looking for something specific. Now they don’t have a way to get it.

This is a way they can keep in contact with me, but not a way that they can actually search on my website.

But if you want to go ahead and use Leadpages, you are just going to go up to your account here and click on this and go to integrations. That drops down.

Once you get to integrations, you are going to click plug-ins, here. It will just give you a plug in. You click on there … You have to click download first, then you’re going to upload it to WordPress.

Once you have it uploaded to your WordPress site, it will show down here, boom, right there. Then you’re going to go ahead and click on that.

Here is Leadpages on the WordPress site. It’s just going to look like this. Nothing spectacular.

You’re going to want to click “add new”, and then that will take it’s sweet time popping up here, and here we go. (This is for page frog that I have, which is a separate plug in which we will talk about later.)

We are going to go ahead and scroll down, because you will probably only see something which looks like this, where it says “add new Leadpage.”

You’re going to click this drop down, and it will list all your Leadpages that you have. My 404 Error page, I titled it 404 page, so I know what it is, so it shows up at the top.

If you want to set it as your default 404 page, so whenever somebody types in an incorrect URL they will get it. You go over here. Just click this little button right there.

If you are doing split testing with it, you’re gonna want to have “no” clicked. But if you are not doing split testing, you can go ahead and click “yes, cache for improved performance.” That way it loads faster. And then all you do is click publish.

It’s going to load here in just a second. And, here it goes.

Now scroll back down, so then it will say, “edit the Leadpage.” You are still in the add new pages. Now we are going to click on this Leadpages over here again. It will show you that you have this one particular page setup. It is active. It is a 404 page. I have titled it 404 page, because that’s what it was over in my Leadpages account.

This is a random test URL, so you can always just click it. And voilà! This is what will show up when people accidentally type in the incorrect URL. That is how you set up a 404 page on your WordPress site, if you have Leadpages.
