    HTTP 404 Not Found Error proposes that the web page you were trying to reach is not found on the server which means that either the page has been removed or moved. You should redirect all 404 error pages to the homepage or another relevant page.

    There are different types of 404s i.e. external, outgoing and internal.

    External 404 occurs when someone else is linking to the broken page of your website. This type does not affects rankings.

    Ongoing 404 occurs when link from your website to another website is broken and it returns a 404. This too does not affects rankings.

    Internal 404 occurs when website itself is linking to different page which is ‘not found’ on your website. This type affects rankings.

    The 404 HTTP reaction code demonstrates that a site's server couldn't discover the page (URL) that was asked for by the client, which illuminates the two programs and web crawlers that the page doesn't exist. Thus, the substance of the page (assuming any) won't be slithered or ordered via web search tools.

    The 404 HTTP response code indicates that a website's server could not find the page (URL) that was requested by the user, which informs both browsers and search engines that the page doesn't exist. As a result, the content of the page (if any) won't be crawled or indexed by search engines.
