What are HTTP status codes?

An HTTP status code is a server response to a browser’s request. When you visit a website, your browser sends a request to the site’s server, and the server then responds to the browser’s request with a three-digit code: the HTTP status code.

These status codes are the Internet equivalent of a conversation between your browser and the server. They communicate whether things between the two are A-okay, touch-and-go, or whether something is wrong. Understanding status codes and how to use them will help you to diagnose site errors quickly to minimize downtime on your site. You can even use some of these status codes to help search engines and people access your site;  a 301 redirect, for example, will tell bots and people that a page has moved somewhere else permanently.

The first digit of each three-digit status code begins with one of five numbers, 1 through 5; you may see this expressed as 1xx or 5xx to indicate status codes in that range. Each of those ranges encompasses a different class of server response.

HTTP response status codes

HTTP response status codes indicate whether a specific HTTP request has been successfully completed. Responses are grouped into five classes:

  1. Informational responses (100199)
  2. Successful responses (200299)
  3. Redirection messages (300399)
  4. Client error responses (400499)
  5. Server error responses (500599)

It’s important for every professional SEO and website owner to understand the status codes that have the biggest impact on SEO. Imagine you’re working on a site that’s showing a lot of 5xx errors; you’ll want to know off the top of your head that this is a server issue. 4xx errors affect visitor experience, so right away you can start thinking about any changes you may have made to your URLs, or whether you’ve any deleted pages. Once you understand the cause of the issue, you can look at implementing a custom 404 page, or look into using the all-powerful 301 redirect to send visitors to the right place.  

Some common Server http response codes with their meaning are mentioned below:

  • 200 status code: OK is good. It means that your server was able to return content for the URL you requested.
  • 301 status code: Moved Permanently means that the requested URL has been moved permanently and all further inquiries should be directed to the new location.
  • 302 status code: Found means the server has found a temporary redirection. This URL should be used again the next time since it is only temporary.
  • 307 status code: Temporary Redirect is similar to a 302 because it is a temporary redirect and the same URL should be used again for the next time.
  • 400 status code: Bad Request simply means that the server did not understand what you were looking for.
  • 401 status code: Unauthorized means that your server will not grant access to the content without authorization
  • 403 status code: Forbidden means that the server will not show you the content, regardless of authentication.
  • 404 status code: Not Found is a common, frustrating error, and might even be what you’re checking for with this Server Status tool. This error code lets you know that the file you were looking for is not found. Search engines need a 404 to know which URLs are valid and which aren’t.
  • 410 status code: Gone is similar to 404. It lets you know that the URL you were looking for did exist, but is gone.
  • 500 status code: Internal Server Error is another frustration that must be directed to your web host or system administrator. It means something is wrong with the server.
  • 503 status code: Another variety of the 500, a 503 response means that the server is unavailable.
