There are two ways I prefer to deal with 404's.

My first choice is to redirect all 404's to either my home page, or a general information page where they can learn more about me and my business.

The second method is to create 404 page that is an informational page, with a very prominent opt-in form, and site search option.

The first option should usually be your first choice. At least when they don't find what they intended to find, they find something valuable.

A 404 page shouldn't be indexed in Google anyway.

I would recommend that you just simply follow Google's guidelines for creating 404 pages.

My tips would be to:

1. Make sure to let visitors know what the deal is
2. Add a link to your homepage
2. Suggest some of your site's most popular pages
3. Make sure to noindex the page
4. Get creative

You can't can't go wrong.
