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

Hi,

There are two way to removing 404 error page from your website

1. You can use robots.txt to block those types of 404 pages
2. You can permanently remove it from your website

Thanks

Actually, Error 404 refers "Page Not Found". Having many 404 pages on your website will definitely reduce your website's reputation and it will definitely lead to drop in keyword rankings on search engines. So, try to remove or redirect these not available pages to avoid upcoming big SEO issues.

The HTTP 404 Not Found Error means that the webpage you were trying to reach could not be found on the server. It is a Client-side Error which means that either the page has been removed or moved and the URL was not changed accordingly, or that you typed in the URL incorrectly. It does effect your website ranking in search engines.
