    Did you choose to maintain IDs when importing?

    I don't see an obvious ID in that URL, though maybe "100" is it (though it could be difficult to match that but not other currently valid URLs. Without an ID, you'd need to create custom redirects for every URL you'd want to redirect.

    Can you Take a look at this?

    old url 1 = http://www.guruslodge.com/index.php?topic=12717.400;wap2
    old url 2 = http://www.guruslodge.com/pc-free-browsing-codes-and-tips/glo-cgi-things/360/?wap2 or http://www.guruslodge.com/pc-free-browsing-codes-and-tips/glo-cgi-things/?wap2 i think the number 360 is for a message in the thread as i have same link with various numbers showing up in webmaster tools.

    new url = http://www.guruslodge.com/index.php?threads/glo-cgi-things.12717/

    the first old url redirects correctly to the new url after using a code i saw on another topic here, but url 2 doesn't redirect.

    i think google wrongly fetched these links as i remember switching from pretty url to default smf url type shortly before i migrated.

    i dont know if there is a way to make these links go away from my webmaster tools.

    Unfortunately, I don't see an ID in the the URL, so the only way to handle redirects would be by handling them individually.
