Soft 404

Soft 404 refers to a page with a staggered status code of 200 even though it returns HTML that the file does not exist.

Normally, if the file does not exist, the status code will be returned as 404, but the status code 200 is returned and the state that conveys the content such as “There is no page” in the displayed HTML is a state that google can easily misidentify.

Google recommends that you correct this phenomenon that is likely to occur in a dynamic system such as when introducing a search system on the site, in that case set the status code to 404 and the page exists in that HTML. I will tell you not to do it.
