404 Error code is an indication that the user was able to connect with the server though the server was not configured to fulfill the request or failed to find out what was asked for. One point must be remembered that Error 404 should not be confused with “server not found” or likes, which refers to a situation when it is not possible to set up a relationship with a location server.

404 – An error message that appears when a web page cannot be found or has been removed.
301 Redirect – A permanent redirect rule from one URL to another.
302 Redirect – A temporary redirect rule from one URL to another.

A 301, or permanently moved, is a redirect that carries and distributes in an absolute manner. You should use a 301 to signify to the crawlers that your content has moved permanently – as in forever.

A 302 status code means Found, or more commonly referred to as “temporarily moved.” This redirect doesn’t carry or pass the link value to the new location. What it does do is get the user to an appropriate location for you so that you aren’t showing them a broken link, a 404 page not found, or an error page.

301 status code means the page has permanently moved to another location and search engine will pass old page value, rank and other important stuff to that newly created page. To obtain the benefit of this, one need to permanently move old page to newly created page.

302 status code means, the page is temperately not available, this code will acknowledge the search engine about temporally unavailability of the page.

404 – An error message that appears when a web page cannot be found or has been removed.
