    My blog works great but, from when I started to use page cache of W3-total-cache, sometime google webmaster tool tell me: http://www.ilsentierodiarmenzano.it/cultura/: "Possible outages While crawling your site, we have noticed an increase in the number of transient soft 404 errors around 2014-02-26 21:00 UTC (London, Dublin, Edinburgh)."
    I became crazy but I didn't solve the problem, for me everything works. Somebody can help me?

    Google support checked my site and tells me that in the first access all css don't load and he must refresh browser page to see everything. Without W3 Total Cache the problem disappears. Help me please. Thanks

    W3 Total Cache takes a lot of tuning, do not just turn everything on and assume it will work. Turn one thing on at a time and review the results. Minify especially takes a lot of tuning. I would also disable Database and Object cache until you get everything else working, and these two really aren't necessary. You will get more bang for your buck using a CDN.

    Hope that Helps

    Thanks chucknb28409. I know it very well. I read a lot of things about W3 Total Cache and I enable only essential features: "Page Cache" - Disk: Enhanced ; "Minify" Minify mode Auto, Minify cache method Disk; and "Browser Cache". I use the same configuration of all my web-site with no problem. In this case, using some web speed tools, I notice that sometime the browser doesn't charge CSS minify files but I don't know why. Could you help me again?

    Hi Emanuel,

    I would not use Minify in Auto mode, this is where I experienced the most problems when I first started using W3. Also did you check the install section under W3 to see if there was anything missing that was necessary for proper plugin operation. The rewrite rules are critical. If not then change the write rules to htaccess and wp-config and try again or hand modify the files as described. W3 must be able to change htaccess and add some files elsewhere under wp-config.

    Hope that helps
