    Hey y'all!

    If my site is all www mysite dot com (Every single page on it)

    and I'm getting a link back from somewhere . . .

    Should these links (Links from other sites pointing to mine) be http or https?

    Which is better and does it make a difference?

    Yeah, it makes a difference. https and http are two different sites in google webmaster tools.

    I'd go with https if possible.

    HTTP is not a secured prototype so I will also sugget you https, here 's' stands for secured data and it means all the communication between your browser and website are encrypted.

    If you have an SSL cert use https! You should 301 redirect all non-www to www and all http to https versions with apache to collect all the linkjuice

    Nobody is even LOOKING at your question. No, https doesn't matter in back links. As long as their website is in good standards with google, ex high authority.

    Ideally links should use https. If you don't have redirect from http to https links using http will not work. If you have http to https redirect in place links are working, but are working slightly slower as there is extra redirect.

    You could alternatively link to your domain with href="//www.yourdomain.com" and the browser will append the protocol in the beginning when linking to your site.
