    404 is a HTTP response code which means the 'Not Found'. When Server unable to find a requested resource from the client, it returns a HTTP Response code 404.

    Soft 404 is when server redirects to a customised page to stop user from viewing the requested resource. There might be cases like a 404 has happened or it may not happened. The page requested is available,but that page is not working properly, So rather than ,viewing the partly wokring page, user is redirected to a custom page without providing the resource asked for

    HI Friends
    Soft 404 is when server redirects to a customised page to stop user from viewing the requested resource. There might be cases like a 404 has happened or it may not happened.A "soft 404" is when a document describing a 404 error is returned by the server with a 200 OK status code in the HTTP headers.

    A 404 error is an HTTP status code that means that the page you were trying to reach on a website couldn't be found on their server. The 404 Not Found error might appear for several reasons even though no real issue exists, so sometimes a simple refresh will often load the page you were looking for. The most common method is to retry the web page by pressing F5, clicking the refresh/reload button, or trying the URL from the address bar again.

    A soft 404 error isn’t an official response code sent to a web browser. It’s just a label Google adds to a page within their index.
    A 404 error is the standardized HTTP status code. The message is sent from the webserver of an online presence, to the web browser (usually the client) that sent the HTTP request.
    The browser then displays this error code.
