I'm using 301 redirect with htaccess to move to new urls and 404 errors in my Google webmaster tool decreased a lot.
I would like to know some new solutions for decreasing 404 errors in GWT :). Anyone else?

I am also using the same strategy for 404 errors. But I think we also delete those 404 pages which are showing in GWT, isn't it ?

404 error is generated when page is not found in the website. When you changes in url, 404 error is generated. When Google crawling your website, it is not found some page in site, then it gives 404 error message. 404 errors are shown in Google webmaster tools under Crawl Errors.

Install a separate tracking for 404 page, monitor URLs and correct them.

Use 301 Redirect which is the best way to minimize the 404 errors. All the expert webmasters and SEOs recommend this to you.

Redirect those 404 error pages by 301 redirect (permanent move) using htaccess file. Upload it.
Go to webmaster tool and open those 404 error page. Now click on fetch as google.
Those URL automatically redirect and generate message as a following.
Now click on mark as fixed.
