    http to https website

    Hi guys

    I finally did the transition from http website to a https website. I was kind of scared or lazy because of the numerous articles giving massive tutorials on how to effectively move a site without losing traffic or ranking. I wa however painless the only thin i had issues with were and parts of my website hta had absolute urls in the html , i changed them to relative paths and also forced a wre write in my htaccess document. Also be aware of any background urls in the css if you are using static html as these my also be absolute paths. The last thing was JavaScript calling on a http version of a image on my website. I must say it was quite easy and i would advise anybody who is concerned about the change to do it. Really isnt that bad especially if you run a WordPress site which has plugins and dynamic urls which could all be changed at once.

    Well is has only been a short while since ive moved over but yes there is a drop by about 50%. I did not see any real increase in rankings for my website although i was already ranking first for most of my search terms. The drop could be that https blocks alot of robots which list themselves as organic traffic.

    The way I can tell is that my impressions in google webmaster tools are still the same really.

    If you have a secure certificate (SSL) on your website, you can automatically redirect visitors to the secured (HTTPS) version of your website to make sure their information is protected. Thanks
