    Google won't verify my site for the reason below

    "Verification status: NOT VERIFIED
    Last attempt Aug 27, 2008: We've detected that your 404 (file not found) error page returns a status of 200 (Success) in the header."

    https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/verify?hl=en

    Basically, WordPress is issuing soft404's - page not found but because it is generating a page, a status 200 is also issued.

    I created statndard errorhandling directives on .htaccess but the WordPress error handler is still the one being utilized.
