Surge in Blogger crawl errors

My Monday morning mystery is an error rush report from Google. The webmaster console has noticed a spike in 404s from this blog and the graph looks dramatic.


There's a catch, of course. I can't find any broken links. I can't even find matches to the suspect URL in the code. For example, 2009/11/1345695324000 is the 404 and yet I can't even find a mention of 1345695324000 in the HTML or JavaScript.

I suppose Googlebot could have constructed the URL by throwing together more JavaScript than I've looked through today but that's rather odd. I suppose, also, there could have been something going on on at Blogger/Blogspot and that was fixed this morning.

It'll be one to watch.
