XML Parsing error on page that does not exist

  1. Hello,

    My wordpress blog was installed through my hosting service and is at For some reason the Google crawler keeps returning a 403 error for a page that does not exist. The page is When I visit the page I get:

    XML Parsing Error: no element found
    Line Number 1, Column 1:

    I have tried actually placing the page in that directory and redirecting it as well as declaring the content type as HTML but to no avail. It seems as if it has something to do with WordPress contacting an imaginary URL.

    Please let me know if you need any other information.
