    I see this massage often and always (in Wordfence) for the same page. Is there something wrong with my site?

    tried to access non-existent page https://mydomain/feed/
    googlebot.com etc.

    Love to hear if this is normal or if I need to fix anything.

    Googlebot see your have WordPress (blogging type website) and wants to go to a default location to find the feed for it. As far as I know, nothing you need to do.

    thanks shawnwyatt! I figured it might be something like it. Do you know if this would effect my google rating negatively?

    Agreed. Check if you have that link embedded in your home page source. View-source and then search for mydomain/feed/

    It's not good to have dead links and that may penalize you slightly.

    OK then I agree with Shawn that it's just google probing your site and nothing to worry about.

    Wordfence Live Traffic reports:

    Mountain View, United States tried to access non-existent page http://mydomain.com/sitemap.xml
    IP: 66.249.85.160 [block]  Hostname: google-proxy-66-249-85-160.google.com

    I use Yoast's WordPress SEO plugin to generate sitemap file. I can open and view sitemap.xml in browser, but I keep seeing it being reported as a non-existent page. Goggle webmaster's page also shows that all pages listed in the sitemap.xml are indexed.

    Any ideas why it is being reported as a non-existent page?
