Since Google bases their business primarily on their search engine, it is pretty much the default for Google. You should be able in most cases to just list "" and that should automatically open to the page with the Google search bar in the center. If for some reason that will not work, you may have picked up some malware somehow and it is re-directing you to another search engine so they can advertise to you. If that is happening, try Malwarebytes (free download) from Good luck! I hope it is a simple solution for you.

HTTP Status Codes

HyperText Transfer Protocol (or HTTP) response status codes are returned whenever search engines or website visitors make a request to a web server. These three-digit codes indicate the response and status of HTTP requests.

Top Tips

Use 301 redirects rather than 302 redirects when redirecting URLs on a site to ensure that link juice (ranking power) is passed between the redirecting web pages.
Web pages that return 404 (File Not Found) for extended periods of time and that have valuable links should be 301 redirected to other web pages.
It is important to have customized 404 pages with recommended navigational options when website visitors request pages that return a 404 response code.
What are HTTP Status Codes?

Http Status Codes
An SEO's Guide to HTTP Status Codes

HTTP Status codes are three-digit numbers returned by servers that indicate the status of a web element.

It is important to understand that the first digit of each three-digit status code begins with one of five numbers, 1 through 5. From the 100s through the 500s, status codes fall into the following categories:

100s - Informational: Request has been received and the process is continuing.
200s - Success: Request was received and processed successfully.
300s - Redirection: Request has been received, but needs to perform an additional step to complete the request.
400s - Client Error: Request was made by the client, but the page is not valid.
500s - Server Error: Valid request was made by the client, but the server failed to complete the request.
While there are many different HTTP status codes, most are not directly important to SEO.

Important HTTP Status Codes for SEOs and search engines

200 OK
The request has succeeded. This is considered correct for most scenarios.

301 Moved Permanently
The requested resource has been assigned a new permanent URI and any future references to this resource should use one of the returned URIs. The 301 redirect, as it is commonly called by SEOs, should be utilized any time one URL needs to be redirected to another.

302 Found
The server is currently responding to the request with a page from a different location, yet the requestor continues to use the original location for future requests. This approach is not recommended. It is not an effective way to instruct search engine bots that a page or site has moved. Using 302 will cause search engine crawlers to treat the redirect as temporary and not give it the link juice (ranking power) abilities of 301 redirects.

404 File Not Found
The server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent. This should occur any time the server can’t find a matching page request. Often times webmasters will display a text 404 error but the response code is a 200. This tells search engine crawlers that the page has rendered correctly and many times the webpage will get erroneously indexed.

410 Gone
The requested resource is no longer available at the server and no forwarding address is known. This condition is expected to be considered permanent. Clients with link editing capabilities SHOULD delete references to the Request-URI after user approval. If the server does not know–or has no facility to determine–whether or not the condition is permanent, the status code 404 (Not Found) should be used instead of 410 (Gone). This response is cacheable unless indicated otherwise.

503 Service Unavailable
The server is currently unable to handle the request due to a temporary overloading or maintenance of the server. The 503 should be used whenever there is a temporary outage (for example, if the server has to come down for a short period for maintenance). This ensures that the engines know to come back soon because the page/site is only down for a short time.

SEO Best Practice

Using 301 Redirects

301 redirects are recommended when redirecting sites or pages. This is because 302 redirects do not instruct search engine crawlers that a page or site has permanently moved. For additional resources on implementing 301 redirects, see Jen Sable Lopez's guide on URL Rewrites and 301 Redirects.

Note: If you're going to redirect an entire domain, we suggest following the recommended guidelines for properly moving domains.

301 Redirects
Redirect 404s When Appropriate

If a page receives important links, gets a substantive volume of visitor traffic, or has an obvious URL that visitors or links are intended to reach, you should employ 301 redirects to the most relevant page possible. Outside of these instances, it may be necessary to purposefully have a URL return a 404–this will keep them from getting indexed and repeatedly crawled by search engines.

One common misconception is that it is an SEO best practice to simply 301 redirect pages that return a 404 status code to the homepage of the given domain. This is actually a bad idea for the majority of cases because is can confuse users who may not realize that the webpage they were trying to access doesn't exist. For additional information, read Rand Fishkin's blog post on when it's appropriate to redirect 404 pages.

HTTP Status Codes

Create an Error Page

When visitors reach 404 pages, they should be given navigational options so they do not leave the given site. Web optimized 404 errors pages should contain:

notification that the user has reached a page that does not exist
a search box
an easy-to-understand navigation system so the user can potentially find what they were originally looking to access
a link to the home page
To add error pages to a website a webmaster can either create a custom layout or customize Google Webmaster Tools' 404 solution. Alternatively, webmasters can reference Smashing Magazine's annual blog posts on creative examples of 404 pages from 2007, 2008, or 2009 for ideas.
