Hi Keisha,

from Google:

How to fix soft 404 errors
1. Check that the page is indeed a soft 404 or a false alarm.
2. Configure your server to return the proper not found error code (404/410)
3. Improve the page and request indexing.
4. Redirect the page using a 301 redirection.
5. Keep the page on your site but de-index it from search engines.

This site here has some good information regarding soft 404s

Hope this helps

All the best

I think it might be an internal link you forgot to change, or Amazon went and changed a link and yours doesn't work anymore.
You can go to Google WebmasterTtools and find out. But they won't tell you which page.

Am I on the right track?
