    I have recently moved to Genesis and I see that I suddenly have 300 404 errors in webmaster tools. I can’t work out where they are from. They all seem to include “function.include-once”.

    For example, this URL a returns a 404 error: http://www.rewardcharts4kids.com/2013/02/function.include-once

    It is linked from: http://www.rewardcharts4kids.com/2013/02/ and http://www.rewardcharts4kids.com/2013/02/function.include-once

    I have no idea how to work out what is causing these errors. I did see a few posts about this issue claiming it was related to Genesis.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    The answer you got from a WP mod over here http://wordpress.org/support/topic/functioninclude-once-errors is exactly what I would’ve said.

    These URLs should be returning 404s since they’re not actual pages of your site. The question is, what’s generating those as links that Google is crawling? I couldn’t find anything in the page source of your archive page at http://www.rewardcharts4kids.com/2013/02/ so I’m a little stumped as to what to suggest. I don’t think it’s a Genesis thing; instead, the first place I’d look is to your previous theme. It’s possible that whatever you were using before has left behind some legacy references that Google is picking up. Have you completely deleted everything you were using before that you’re not using now? Plugins, themes, etc. – maybe get rid of those from the server? (Take a backup of the whole site first of course.)

    This problem seems to be related to the Genesis theme. It only happens on themes that use Genesis and recently I have moved 5 sites from Thesis to Genesis and hundreds of these errors start showing on every site after the move to Genesis. None of the Thesis sites show these errors and none of the errors appear before the move to Genesis.

    I cannot find the cause or where the code is coming from. What could it be?
