The 404 or Not Found error message is a HTTP standard response code indicating that the client was able to communicate with a given server, but the server could not find what was requested. Basically, Soft 404 is a page that looks like a 404 but returns a HTTP status code 200. ... Our custom 404 widget can help.

404 errors are 'Not Found' error message. It is the standard HTTP response code, indicating that communication was made with the server but the page could not be found.

Hi

404 Errors: Are defined those errors when a user search for a webpage and the server can’t find it to serve the user.
Soft 404 Error: These are those 404 Errors when a user looks for a webpage which is not served by server and instead of this the user is re-directed to the home page of that website.

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.

Soft 404 errors are much harder on your website's visibility than a hard 404 error. A “soft” 404 error happens when the wrong code (often the 200 response code) is returned by your server when someone tries to access a page that no longer exists on your site.
If the number of soft 404 errors is high, especially in comparison to the number of “real” pages on your site, it can have a negative impact on your organic search performance.

When everything is working the right way, your reader will see an error page, and your server will return a 404 or 410 response code. This lets both readers and crawlers know that the page doesn’t exist anymore and shouldn’t be indexed, and that page will be removed from search results over time.

A soft 404 is not real 404 error, but Google will deindex those pages if they aren’t fixed quickly. It is best to crawl your site regularly to see if 404 or soft 404 errors occur. Crawling tools should be a major component of your SEO arsenal.

The 404 error means the web page you are requesting is no longer present on the server and Soft 404 error means the webpage you are requesting for is present on the server but the content of the page is not found on the server dues to any reason.
