Make Sure Your Settings Match to Avoid 404 Errors

Settings are easy to overlook but can have devastating repercussions for your SEO. There is one setting in particular that has been plaguing modern websites – the Posts per Page settings.

Make sure these settings match to avoid some serious on-site SEO errors.

If you have a WordPress website, you need to make sure your “Blog pages show at most” number matches your page builder settings for archive posts display. 

If these settings don’t match then you will have 404 – Page Not Found errors created on your pagination links (these can be ‘Previous & Next’, arrows, or any other button). 

If you are using a service like Squarespace or Wix then you won’t need to worry as much about this error – but it never hurts to test the pagination links on your site just in case!

Hi. I’m Mateo Baisden. I’ve spent over a decade building websites with my team at Cloud Agency. I’ve seen first-hand what a difference a professionally designed and managed website can make for a small business.

Now with Genie in a Website, we can provide a fully-managed website at an easy-to-budget-in flat monthly fee. We’ll build it, care for it, and make updates and improvements any time you wish. Everything is included. It’s truly full-service.

Finally, you can be proud of your website. A website with unlimited wishes inside…
