A 404 error is returned when the browser requests a page or file from the web server and server is unable to find that page so it returns 404 file not found error.


Soft 404 error is returned when the browser requests a resource from the web server and the server returns 200 OK response for a file that does not exist on the server. So, in both cases, file is not exist on the server but in case of soft 404 the server returns 200 OK response code by mistake.

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 Soft 404s can confuse search engines and seem like redirects.

The error 404 "page not found" means that the page you are finding is not exist on server. Soft 404 means page not found and user will move to either home page or custom page.
