    So I added all version of my website to GSC. I keep reading this is what needs to be done:
    • http
    • https
    • non-www
    • www
    It seems like Google has indexed some pages from the non-www https version and none from the others. I want to use WWW and HTTPS.

    The only thing google allows me to change is if I want to see the non-www or www version of the site, it doesn't ask and I don't know where to change that I also want the https version (I have Let's Encrypt SSL).

    How can I fix this mess? Should I delete my properties except for the one I want to keep?

    Maybe I should only have added the version I want which is HTTPS and WWW only?

    3.chose you prefer domain

    4.use rel=canonical to tell google which page you like to be index to prevent some duplicate content issue

    Also, submit a sitemap only to the one that you want displayed in search. If you have sitemaps submitted to multiple versions, then it can mess things up (this was my experience :X)

    Just put your main site in GSC, make sure the other domains are redirected to your main page and get a canonical.

    The other domains are already redirected with htaccess and all have the canonical tag.

    So I'll just delete all versions of the website I do not want from GSC. Thanks!
