Hi

Today I was doing some kw research amongst other things and was checking one of my sites in kwfinder and noticed that my link count had dropped.

What actually happened is that in the past when checking for backlinks on my site I was typing in http instead of https, today I typed in https the difference between the two is 1500 links on the http which I understand because a couple of years back I switched from http to https I am wondering if this has had an impact on my site ranking drop, I though it was due to the new Google update.

My question is that is my https not getting the link juice? Do I need to start building links to the https version of the site, I would have thought that the link juice from the redirect from http -> https would have held that juice.

Thanks

Redirecting from HTTP to HTTPS will not flow all link juice, you have to keep building the strong links for HTTPS. Links are counted referring to the URL type, so the difference will occur.
