    If some URLs on your site 404, this fact alone does not hurt you or count against you in Google’s search results.

    I have only recent;y started using Google's Webmaster Tools, but from what I can tell it does hurt you if you have pages displaying a 404 error. If you hook your site up with Google's Webmaster Tools then you can see which pages are producing this error.

    Thank you for the feedback .............

    404 errors do affect search engine rankings but the drop is usually not sudden. If the errors appeared recently and they are just a few, then the drop in your rankings has most likely been caused by something else. However you should still have those errors resolved as quickly as possible...................

    Yes, it affect search engine rankings but more that this it affect on the traffic because whenever our web page is unable to give information to user then they may get bad experience. So, it is primary thing that resolve this issue.You can accomplish redirection like 301 to a relative page and avoid bad impression on the users.

    In theory, 404s have an impact on rankings. But not the rankings of a whole site. If a page returns a 404 error code, it means it doesn't exist, so Google and other search engines will not index it.

    Re: Do 404 errors affect my search engine rankings

    A 404 error is an HTTP status code that means that the page you were trying to reach on a website couldn't be found on their server. The 404 Not Found error might appear for several reasons even though no real issue exists, so sometimes a simple refresh will often load the page you were looking for. The most common method is to retry the web page by pressing F5, clicking the refresh/reload button, or trying the URL from the address bar again.
