It is possible that upon update a merchant's products were unavailable on our end due to their feed missing when we performed an update. And if your site updated at that time, then you would have missing products at that time.

You could try decreasing the update time to 1 day to see if that helps. But it might just be that the merchant(s) removed those products from their inventory for good.

Well ... I get daily notices about store .... I'll give that theory a test and change the setting to 1 day and see if the emails stop or slow down.

Thanks! :D

Is there an update for this problem? I also get email everyday from WMT about 404 errors and don't know what I shoud do? Redirect them or just leave it. Some of my websites has an enormous drop of visiters after this, but others don't.

What is your advice?

I have done now.
I will wait and see what happens.
Is it good to give the soft 404's a redirect?

To be honest, I'm not sure.
