Unmodified HTTP 304
An unmodified HTTP 304 status code means that the website you are requesting has not been updated since the last time you accessed it. Typically, your browser will save (or cache) web pages so that you don't have to repeatedly download the same information. This is an attempt to speed up the delivery of the pages. However, if this happens on your site, visitors could be blocked from accessing your web pages.
When you click on a web page or URL, your browser requests access from a web server. If it has not been modified sincethe last time you accessed it, the web server will return an unmodified 304 status code, which instructs your browser to use a cached version of the web page.
Usually, you will only see this error code if you are on a search engine because search engines index and cache websites.
If your browser receives this code, it will try to show you a saved version of the page. But sometimes it can prevent you from accessing the url because it is outdated.
As a marketer, you could lose traffic and leads if visitors can't see your site.
So what causes an unmodified 304 code?

3. An application has corrupted files.

A 304 unmodified code may occur because yourThe browser is corrupted by a virus or malware. Check that this is not the problem and clean your computer.
3. Disable extensions.

If you receive an HTTP 304 Unmodified error code message, it is because the URL you requested contains outdated information. To remedy this, you'll want to verify that the error is not on your side - the client - but rather on the server side.
