    While 404s will generally not harm you, the soft 404s and crawl errors could negatively affect your crawl which in turn can hurt your visibility in the SERPs. Here are a few things to look for:

    404 pages
    Make sure that you update your site so that you are not linking to 404 pages internally. If pages have been updated and the URL has changed for some reason or the content has been moved to another page, make sure that you are redirecting to the new URL instead of returning a 404 for the old page (this will help for people that may have linked to the "old" page as well as improve user experience on your site by not sending users to non-existent pages).

    The soft 404's should be checked to see if they should be a 404 or if they need to be redirected. Check the soft 404 pages, do they have the content they are supposed to, and should they be returning a 200 rather than a 404? Are there different URLs for these pages now? should they be 301 redirected to the correct URL?
    -or-
    Are they actually non-existent and they need to return a 404? You can check the HTTP response by using Fetch as Google in your webmaster tools.

    Additionally, if you are returning 404's do you have a custom 404 page set up? This page should provide the user with additional information about how to find what they were looking for. Offer navigational links and a search option in order to help them do so.

    Hope that helps some.
