So at the moment this is just a question, however, depending on the answer it could lead to much more. My question is, is there, or was there any benefit to searching/scraping Google when it was http as opposed to now where everything is forced through https? I noticed a couple months ago that they had made some kind of update that now forces everything through https://www.google.com instead of being able to use just good old fashioned http. My other question is, did that effect anyone, and if so, how? Thanks a ton and sorry if this seems rather random or stupid, I'm just trying to wrap my mind around something. Have a great day everyone.
