    I see this quiet often in SEO discussions, blog posts, etc.

    Soft 404 error

    But what does that really mean? Is there an hard 404 too? How are these different?

    Hello Friends,
    A soft 404 is a URL that returns a page telling the user that the page does not exist and also a 200 (success) status code. In some cases, it might be a page with little or no content (for example, a sparsely populated or empty page). ... A success status code tells search engines that there's a real page at that URL.

    A soft 404 error isn't an official response code sent to a web browser. It's just a label Google adds to a page within their index.
