Google dance and 404 errors
So I've been working on my website but ever since I submitted my sitemap to google, my website seems to be dancing. It goes from page to 16 back to 8 and now to 12 again.
One thing I did not have was the robot.txt which I uploaded last night. It seems like I have 91 crawl errors so far. All 404
I've made some changes to URL. Like from about.php to about-us.html for example.
What should I do to fix this?
I also did "Fetch as Googlebot" and did "URL and linked pages submitted to index" just now.
My website is www.mokaziphotography.com

Reason: change of title

If you have been changing the urls AFTER submitting the site map... that will be the 404. You need to arrange 301 redirects otherwise Google will penalise your site to a degree for "content being unavailable".
This clears up after time though, Google will remove the faulty links and use the new ones instead.
