I recently opened a google.com/webmasters account to better manage my website. Over the years I have accumulated about 50 crawl errors that are reported in my account. Most of these are the result of URL changes I have made.
I wish to "redirect" these old URLs to the current URLs. My guess is that I need to provide Google with a redirect site map to fix the crawl errors. I was able to download the errors which opened on my system as an Excel file. Is there some format I need to follow, perhaps inserting the current URLs in the Excel file and sending it back.
My question is how do I do this?

If you want to redirect the old URLs to current ones, that's really all you need to do. You don't need to provide Google with a "redirect site map," but if any of the bad URLs are listed in your current site map they should certainly be removed, whether they're to be redirected or not -- if they don't resolve properly,. they shouldn't be listed in the sitemap.

At the top of my Site Errors page (google.com/webmasters account), there is a message saying "No errors detected in the last 90 days". This is followed by all the URLs in "error". Sort of confusing.


Now that I have a google.com/webmasters account am finding it difficult to understand how to use and interpret the information.
