StudioWeb is the most advanced code training platform out there today. Since 2011, StudioWeb has taught well over 1 million students real-world coding and programming. We currently offer career oriented courses in the following in demand languages:
Let’s start with the foremost critical question is: how does one fix 404 errors? the foremost common and simplest way to repair a 404 error is to redirect the broken URL to a different, related URL.
While redirects are often the proper solution, redirecting a broken URL isn’t always the proper solution. There are four ways to mend 404 not-found errors on your website.
Redirect the 404 error someplace else. With a redirect, you route people from the error page to a working page on your website. This prevents people from reaching the error. for instance, if people are reaching a slip-up page with the URL “/specials”, you'll be able to tell your server to redirect people to the working page “/special” instead.
The key a part of implementing the redirect, though, is ensuring the page you're redirecting to has relevancy to the page people were hoping to search out.
As an example, you wouldn’t want to redirect a blunder URL of “/specials” to “/contact” because that may leave people confused about why they're on a contact page after they were expecting to arrive on the /specials page. Learn more about a way to use and implement redirects.
Correct the source link. If the broken link sending traffic to the not found error page exists on your website and is under your control, you'll be able to correct the broken link at the source. this is often also true for not-found errors on other properties within your control, like social networks or local profiles. However, most broken links are located on sources you don’t control so in those cases you can’t fix the broken link and might only redirect people to the proper page.
Restore deleted pages. Sometimes, you delete pages from your website and other people still come to your website trying to find the pages you deleted. If somebody tries to access a deleted page, they’ll get a not-found error.
Which may be the purpose and there could also be a decent reason for the removal (see fix #4 below). However, if there's still plenty of demand for removed content, you'll want to revive the deleted page.
Ignore the not found error. Odd because it may sound, sometimes the proper answer is to try and do nothing and leave the 404 error in situ. together example, if you’ve deleted low-quality pages from your website, you'd want those low-priority URLs to return a not-found error.
Those pages were bringing down your site quality and therefore the 404 tells Google (and human visitors) that you simply removed the low-quality content in an endeavor to enhance your website’s quality. In other cases, the 404 error is on a page you removed purposefully and you don’t there's nowhere relevant to redirect the removed page.
This often happens on eCommerce websites after you remove a product from your website and there's no re-creation of that product. regardless of the reason, by leaving the 404 not-found error in situ, that broken page will fall out of the search index and stop getting traffic.
i made the same transition - so maybe i can share with you some thoughts.
I was in the field of Online Marketing and that's why i had some touching points with technology (but not programming) before. Today i think you can make a transition from any field to programming because the world of IT is very open and the demand is there.
But People with background in Marketing can benefit the most in IT. The Software we write has to be sold (to a customer or to a User), you have to pitch your idea to a decider for your Project (Marketing), as a Developer you have to market yourself (in a Company or as a Freelancer). As you can see, Knowledge about Marketing is very useful, because we want to code for cash.
The learning path is not different from people from other industries. Learn the basics and start to write Code. Stay in your field/job until you wrote your first progams. Then kick-start your career as a Developer.
I also think programming and Marketing is a very good combo, as Stef said.
You can start to create a website for a product you like and use your marketing knowlegde for the content and UX. This can be a good playground to learn the skills :).
Regards and all the best,
