    Ok sorry bro, asking noob question.

    I do know https means this website is SSL.

    let say a visitor type http// your website

    also can access to your website no problem right? even the backlinks etc will not affected? After you make your site to SSL ?

    Yes, all links will continue working. Just make sure to redirect all unsecure traffic to https.

    yes, no problem if your visitor types http. the backlinks will still remain unaffected. the SSL is just to secure your website from financial hackers that may want to steal personal details from your site users or visitors.

    I think the norm is to auto redirect http - https if you set up https. That way everyone gets redirected to one place, juice gets transferred and so on.

    But as said above, no need for ssl unless you are processing payments directly on your site.
