You can find the broken links with the help of google analytics.
and with the help of Xenu, a free tool, will help you to redirect broken links permanently or temporarily.

The 404 Error Page, recognized as "page not found," is an HTTP standardized status code that specifies an established connection with the server but an incapability to find the page in question. Excessive 404 errors negatively effect a website's SEO and are lost revenue chances once the user does not finally navigate to the website.

I'd definitely check that article out. I'd also recommend reading "Is Your WordPress 404 Page Killing Traffic & Drinking Your SEO Juice?" as it has some specific recommendations for plugins to help you out depending on what you are trying to accomplish.

How is it that you have 9k worth of 404s on wordpress? Is it related to a change in your permalink structure? If so, you may want to check out the Change Permalink Helper plugin.

I find myself using WordPress › 404-error-monitor " WordPress Plugins to easily determine which links are generating the most 404 errors, and then I use Safe Redirect Manager to create 301 permanent redirects for the most common 404 links to point them to a page on my site that seems relevant (based upon the structure of the link that is producing the 404, which will only be helpful if you are using Pretty Permalinks, which you should always be using btw).

Hope that helped. Good luck - that's an awful lot of 404s!

You should apply 302 redirects to another page which is similar to your page or to a replica. Later on you can edit the HTML code and fix them permanently.
