The 404 or Not Found error message is a HTTP standard response code indicating that the client was able to communicate with the server but the server could not find what was requested. 404 errors should not be confused with "server not found" or similar errors, in which a connection to the destination server could not be made at all. Another similar error is "410: Gone", which indicates that the requested resource has been intentionally removed and will not be available again. A 404 error indicates that the requested resource may be available in the future.

There are several reasons why this happens. You need to remember that is the internet is constantly changing. A site can change while you are looking at it, refresh the page and it's different. I can happen when we are working on the site. Sometimes we make changes to a site where new pages are added and other deleted. Changes like this can leave obsoletes links floating around the internet.

Sometimes a site moves to different host. This can happen when a site outgrows it's host. Some may move move several times before it's bandwidth demands became huge! According to the webmaster this site was getting tens of thousands of visitors every day, and the right host. There some websites the place exact copies of someone else's pages on their server. These pages can last for years without ever being updated giving lots of 404 errors from their bad links. ALso, Search engines can have a lot of broken links that take a long time to be purged from their list.
