    Usually, when someone requests a page that doesn't exist, a server will return a 404 (not found) error. This HTTP response code clearly tells both browsers and search engines that the page doesn't exist. As a result, the content of the page (if any) won't be crawled or indexed by search engines.

    A 404, or Page Not Found error message, is an HTTP response indicating the browser could not communicate with a given server or the server could not find the page requested.

    The soft 404 is a page error and looks like a 404. It returns an error page by the server saying it can't find the page. This type of error can sometimes still be read as a live page by the SE's.

    The 404 or Not Found error message is a HTTP standard response code, in computer network communications, to indicate that the client was able to communicate with a given server, but the server could not find what was requested.
    A ‘Soft 404’ error occurs when a non-existent page (a page that has been deleted/removed) displays a ‘page not found’ message to anyone trying to access it, but fails to return a HTTP 404 status code.
