    hi guys,

    I need urgent help on advice or tips with this,
    I have a blog that has loads of posts in category properties/for-rent or properties/for-sale

    now I've changed the added a new category in the below the master category to become,
    properties/residential/for-rent and properties/residential/for-sale,

    cos I've added more posts for properties/commercial/for-rent and properties/commercial/for-sale,

    how do I redirect all the categories from properties/for-rent to properties/residential/for-rent?
    I'm facing a problem as google webmaster tools submits my properties/for-rent/page/1 to properties/for-rent/page/68

    so there're loads of errors in there which lowered my SEO dramatically,
    how do I get by this errors? or should I sit through the down fall?

    Thanks

    Well written, marvellous. But if you cannot understand that article, you could search for other articles regarding the same issue on Google, Bing or Yahoo.
