If you are new to blogger then you may have a question that What is 404 Error Page on blogger? Well the answer is whenever someone comes up looking for some page or content on your blogger website and its not there or missing then blogger redirects the visitor to default 404 error page which shows default error message or page missing message.
If you already know what 404 Error Page on blogger is  then you might want to modify or customize it. In this post i am going to explain it in very easy steps to customize or modify Blogger 404 Error page.

Default error message looks like this
You can change the default message and to customize it you must go to Settings > Search preferences > Custom Page not Found

<div class='BBT-404-box'>
  <p style='line-height: 30px'><strong>
<font color='#ff0000' size='5'>
You kidding me? </br>
</font> <font color='#666666'>
Looks like you clicked a broken link or a Page that no more exits. </br>Now all you can do is
  <ol style='line-height: 25px'>
    <li><a href='javascript:history.go(-1)'>&#171; Go Back</a> </li>
    <li>Report the Problem to us by <a href=''>Clicking Here</a>&#160;&#160;&#160; (<em>This will help us serve you even better</em>) </li>
