    The Error 404 "Page not found" is the error page displayed whenever someone asks for a page that’s simply not available on your site.

    Google Reported they included “soft” alternately “crypto” 404s with their “crawl errors” report card clinched alongside Google Webmaster instruments. Delicate 404s alternately crypto 404s are page not discovered pages that give back those server reaction code of 200. Technically, 404 pages if give back An server status code 404, which intends page not discovered.

    Google revealed that they have added “soft” or “crypto” 404s to their “crawl errors” report in GWT. Soft 404s are the pages which don't get found that return the server response code of 200. Technically, 404 pages should return a server status code 404, which means page not found.

    Soft 404 error page means when you will try to access any particular website's page/link and you will be redirected to other page instead of 404 error message page.

    To remove this, you should check the if there is redirection code or redirection added from somewhere. You can check the .htaccess files too for the code.

    It is not found the error. When you are requesting for something on the server or for a webpage and that page does not exist on the server then you will get the 404 error response.
