    Does it make a difference when link building if you have links pointing to https instead of just http?

    you need to invest in ssl to get an https , if you are having an ecome site then https is a good option as it is more secure and also customer feel safe with https (at least for me ) , if your site is https then build the back links with https

    It slows down your site's performance. It's ok to use the S for folders and pages needing high security such as login screens, shopping carts, but has no advantage for regular pages imho.

    I come from a land downunder
    I run an ecommerce site thats all https when I'm logged into the back end (which I am 90% of the time), although my customers see just http until they hit the cart. I frequently post links accidently to the https version of the page and see the same kind of movement in the serps as I would have if I'd posted the http version.

    So - in my case, it don't matter, only the http version shows up in the serps.

    I don't actually have a https site but I have pages built on another site which are all https and I wasn't sure if I should build backlinks to https or take the s off. So I should point backlinks to https if the site uses it?
