404 Monitor now features a new, streamlined interface. 404 errors are grouped by URL and feature a hit counter and hit recency info.
Each 404 now has its own convenient dropdown list of referring URLs. This is ideal for pinning down broken links on your site that may be generating the 404s.
Just click a referrer to open it in a new window. There’s also a similar list for user agents, ideal for catching 404 URLs that search engine spiders are visiting.
The 404 Monitor data table also integrates with WordPress’s “Screen Options” feature that lets you personalize the interface of your 404 Monitor by enabling/disabling log table columns.
The new 404 Monitor was built with the modern website in mind and automatically ignores common sources of harmless 404s, including the iPhone’s apple-touch-icon.png requests and browsers’ favicon.ico queries.
In addition to these new and improved features, 404 Monitor maintains existing features such as Google Cache querying, selective log entry deletion, and a temporary disable option.
Not only does version 2.1 include 404 Monitor version 2, it also includes over a dozen other behind-the-scenes tweaks, including database optimizations and PHP overhead reductions.
If you’re already taking advantage of the power of SEO Ultimate on your own WordPress blog, you can upgrade to the latest version in just a few clicks by going to the “Plugins” section of your WordPress admin.
