SEO Checker comes with a bunch of nice tools that helps you easy optimize  your site for SEO. Today I want to show you the Not Found pages functionality that is introduced in SEO Checker V1.2. I’ve always found it hard to configure not found pages for multiple sites and more than one language. You needed to tweak the configuration to get language specific not found pages working, or install uComponents and adding properties to the document types. And of course IIS and Umbraco present you different default error messages that we need to configure. I’m sure we this picture looks familiar where the .aspx version shows a different than the same url with .php as extension.

With SEO Checker it’s now possible to specify  a not found page per site and per language. When you open the SEO Checker section and open the domain settings menu from settings. All domains that are configured as a root are listed. For each domain and language (1 in the image below)  you can then specify the not found page (2 in the image below) and the next time there is page not found on your site it will display the nice page you configured instead of an ugly one.
