    Hi Prabha have you resolved this?

    Just run an seo audit ( free - search online)

    Find all broken links

    Map old to new links

    Use a 301 plugin to fix these.

    I would recommend checking in Google webmaster - it shows 404 properly as well.

    If there are certain links you no longer want, you can let google know via webmaster

    If you are using blogger, go to blogger settings and select "Search Preferences". 

    Click on Custom Redirect and Enter both, old and new URL in "From" and "to". 

    This usually helps when you need to fix one URL at a time.

    Dont worry, place 301 redirection always so that those 404 urls would redirect to the new urls and link juice will also be pass on to the new urls. For wordpress, you will get plenty of plugins for this redirection.

    Hi Prava

    If you are using wordpress, it can be done with a simple plugin called redirecton. Put your 404 link on source and put the new link on the destination. Thats it. No need to warry about ..

    Hope it helps

    Hi Prabha,
    For this, you have t do a 301 redirect. Its not that hard if you have the htaccess file of your website.
    It's hard to mention everything out here step by step, so referring a video from youtube.
