    When I check for crawl errors on google webmaster, I get a lot of 403 errors. (see attachment)
    The page exists, but for some reason the www in Google's URL is missing. How come and how can I correct this?

    You can specify whether Google should use a specific address for crawling your site.

    Site Configuration > Settings > Preferred Domain

    Alternatively you can add an alias so you site responds properly from both the plain domain *and* the www sub-domain :)

    403 means it doesn't have permission to access it -- if you don't allow guests to view profiles, that's totally expected.
