Can anyone advise...

In my Google Webmaster Tools I am getting a lot of page not found errors... this within the past few weeks and the following within the past few days.

for example.. PAGE NOT FOUND

with the error orginating from


BUT the latter of the two pages doesn't exist. (and hasn't been removed recently)

I am also seeing error messages with the "/feed" at the end of the post url and I cannot see why this is happening.

I am getting dozens of these error messages.

Thanks for any help or advice..

In GWT when it shows you 404 errors, it will show you what pages they were referenced from. Recently I have found them showing 404s referenced from 2008 sitemaps, 2010 sitemaps, even from other sites, etc. as if every post or page ever created and referenced in a sitemap is supposed to exist forever in that same location. I realize that is the point of "permalinks" but the reality is that old stuff gets removed. I see the same kinds of 404's on static sites so I don't think it is WP specific.

I am seeing more weird 404's than ever, sometimes the URL is obviously search results, I have quit pulling my hair out over GWT errors that make no sense.
