    Website is a static website developed with PHP, but URL structure is dynamic ( with id's). I want to make them static URL's with out losing the ranking of my indexed pages.

    By "ranked", do you mean "pages for which you're receiving converting referral traffic?" If you only "rank" and don't receive traffic, you haven't got anything to lose by rewriting the URL.

    At any rate, there is no way to do what you want to do without taking a short-term search engine hit if you're getting traffic from search engines. It's just not possible. Even if you rewrite your URLs and make sure your PHP URLs are properly 301ed to their static equivalents, you are going to suffer. The reason is that people misuse and abuse 301s all the time and "permanently redirect" users to new pages when a 302 (or now a 307, although I haven't played with that) would suffice. This can potentially turn into a long-term issue if you're not careful, either. What I would suggest you do is to rewrite some of the URLs if you can and test the effect, then rewrite others, and so on and so on.

    Now, how exactly you do that will depend on what it is that you've built and what type of server it's on. In all likelihood, you're on a Linux box so an .htaccess mod rewrite will do the trick. Here's a tool that will help you:
