    Hey,

    some of my pages returning 200 status code instead of 404 error page.

    This is veryyyy bad for Seo, because Google following those pages - an empty pages!

    I tried changing permalinks structure, recreating .htaccess file. Nothing helps.

    Any solution would be appreciated!

    Thanks for trying to help, but I already have 404 error page - my theme comes with 404 error page (Woothemes). Some pages are returning normal 404, but urls like mysite.com/page/5 or even mysite.com/page/53345667 return 200 status code instead of 404.

    Any other thoughts?

    If this case return correctly your error page ...but with wrong code, try add them on first line <?php header('HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found'); ?>
