Did you ever go visit a page/post on a site and get a 404 Page Not Founddisplayed instead? It's happened to us all, but can be embarrassing when it happens within your own site! Luckily, there's a quick fix…in less than a minute (well I guess depending on how slow/fast your computer is…LOL).
404 Easy Redirect
But for WordPress bloggers, it's VERY easy to prevent this from happening on your site, and to direct visitors to your home page, or other dedicated page, if they visit a broken link or possibly type in an incorrect URL on your site.
From your Dashboard, go to Plugins, Add New.
In the Search box, enter 404 Easy Redirect.
Find the one from Ninja Press (404 Easy Redirect) and click Install Now.
Then click to Activate Plugin.
Lastly, from the Dashboard, go to Settings, then 404 Easy Redirect and be sure to check Enable.
Click Save Changes.
Note, the HOME page is the default and will work just fine. However, you can create a custom page for visitors that get a 404 Page Error on your site.

I've been listening to free webinars by Jeanine O'Neill-Blackwell about creating successful, profitable online courses. You can check out her site here. She offers a 7-module online course(I am not an affiliate, just have been enjoying her free videos and free webinars).
Some helpful tips I got from listening to my first webinar with Jeanine Blackwell:
First, in creating a course, you need to determine NOT what you want to TEACH your audience, but answer and address what it is your audience is ASKING. You need to determine that SOLUTION (not simply what you want to share or think would be helpful).
Go to Amazon and read reviews on popular books on your topic and see what the customers valued and what more they were looking for.
Four key questions to get you started on outlining your online course:
1) If they complete your course, _________ will happen.
2) How will they do this? How will you help them achieve (give them the tools)?
3) What do they need to know (prior to taking the course)?
4) Why should they take your course…right now (create the urgency)?
In listening to her sessions and thinking about all my clients that want to create online courses/classes, I started searching for affordable options where there is minimal programming (or NO programming needed). Then I came across UseFedore.com.
