With Search & Replace you can search for everything and replace this with everything but before you do this you can easily create a simple database backup and restore it.

For avoiding problem please keep in mind that this plugin search and replace strictly what is specified in “Replace With”.
Common error example:
Search For: http://web.com/wordpress/
Replace With: http://neuweb.com/wordpress
The url become something like: http://neuweb.com/wordpresscontent/…

Correct “Replace with”:
Search For: http://web.com/wordpress/
Replace With: http://neuweb.com/wordpress/
The url become something like: http://neuweb.com/wordpress/content/…

We have implemented special features!

The first one is “Replace a Domain / URL” that is useful for a quick and simple transfer or a migration of a WordPress site.
The second feature is full support for serialized data. There are a lot more features – check them out! 🙂

Our goal with this plugin is to give you a good solution for manipulating your data for both Developers and Users of WordPress.

+ Jason's Comments

Managing content across your website includes having consistency for certain terms. This plugin will find and replace terms for you – but be careful and backup before hand. I also recommend using reusable content blocks. Technically, many people use this plugin when moving a website from one domain to another domain, then need to update the domain URL for images and links in posts, across the site.
