I have a pr 5 site, it is a clean and ethical site in all ways, uses a
wordpress base for the homepage and the blog, never had a problem.
But last month when changing the css menu, I left out a '/' in the
menu, basically some simple code mistake I made when changing the
menu. It made the google look for pages that did not exist.
And when I looked at the google webmaster tools, it showed about 7000
pages 404 'not found' Wow. I understand why google had trouble with
I fixed the errors at once in the CSS menu.
But now for the last two weeks I am stilled not cached (however, I am
in the google search result) Sometimes I see a page trying to be
cached but when I go to the cached it shows ->
Your search - cache:eMfX_bb-Tc0J:www.claritaslux.com/blog/ claritaslux
- did not match any documents.
I am starting to panic as I do not do anything unethical and really
just a basic wordpress based site.
I was thinking it could be duplicate content created from my tags and
categories, the things that wordpress can be known to create duplicate
content for, but I think it is still all about the 404 errors because -
I checked the error file on webmaster tools again this morning and as
of a few days ago it was still producing errors, what it should not
have been showing, so I image that there is delay in the webmaster
tools and reality.
The bottom line it does not seem to be fixing itself.
Please help as I have worked on this site for years in an ethical way
and would not like to see it go away.

Re: Not cached but indexed
Just wait for Google to re-index the site. As you have removed the source of
the 404 links, Google should re-index in its next crawl and fix it. It can
take up to one month, just need to be patient.
I don't think the 404 errors in webmaster tools will be removed so fast.
