    Hi Everyone,

    Can anyone help me with how I can change/edit the HomePage URL which is being indexed by the Google with some other URL format?

    My website URL is http:// happy valentine images. com/ but Google indexed it with HTTPs extension. Just go to Google and type site : happy valentine images . com without spaces. You will see that the site home page is indexed with HTTPs extension.

    When I was accessing the website with extension https on Google using Google Chrome then I am ending up with a message that "Your connection is not private".

    When I open the website URL https:// happy valentine images. com/, the cached data of some other website is shown on the web page.

    Please help me out with the problem I am facing because I have checked over Search Console, crawled the website again and check for rel=canonical URL but I didn't find any solution to this problem.

    Who will help me in this we be gifted one "Google Adsense Account for Free".

    Thanks and Regards

    It's just the way google works these days. Once when your hosting provider upgraded WHM in some cases CPanel pretty much auto enabled certificates for all accounts and google being google simply "tries" to pick up https version just like it does with m.site or site/m etc...

    There are two solutions for this, either install https certificate and move your entire site to https or do a redirection to http over https.

    I'm not sure what would be recommended solution, on my sites I've done both, forced https and forced http as well and it worked pretty much same in both cases. Just one had http version and other https and green padlock. That's all.

    As you are probably using wordpress there are plugins for both versions. Look for plugins that "force http version of site" or look for plugin that "force https version of site".

    This will do it for you with couple of clicks. Just make sure to do it one way or another, as it's not smart to have both https and http, just keep it at one of those.

    Thank you so much for suggesting me some good solutions but at present, I have not much funds to buy the SSL certificate for my site. I was looking for some other technical but easy solutions. I am very thankful to you that you have explained everything in detail.

    Best Regards

    https is free in lets encrypt.
    google prefers https and from what I've read, it's also a ranking factor.

    Buddy, I have contacted to my web hosting providers and domain name providers both but they said there is no problem in hosting and domain name.
    They said to take Google Help. LOL!
    Sorry but I do not know about "activate lets encrypt for you" as I am a beginner in this field. Can you please explain a bit more about this.

    Thanks and Regards

    contact your webhosting provider again and tell them that you want to use https on your website. Tell them that you found out that you can have it for free by using letsencrypt.org

    most webhosting providers do have it and will gladly activate it for you

    Hi Neotez,

    Hope you are doing great and thanks for replying :)

    When I posted this message on BHW when I genuinely facing the issue mentioned above. All my website traffic got dropped and rankings too.
    I have some solid proofs to defend my problem like I have proper screenshots which I can not share here on BHW because I am a newbie.
    The problem is resolved now, I have installed the WP cache plugin and enable it.
    The issue vanished. I have also changed the theme of the website.
    I am happy that I got so much knowledge from BHW forum members regarding SSL certificate and how can be buy it for free.
    Thanks and Regards

    Hey buddy,
    I think you didn't get it what I was trying to say.
    Just go to Google and type "site:happyvalentineimages.com" you will see that my home page URL is indexed with HTTPs extension and all other pages without HTTPs extension.
    When I am click that HTTPs URL. I came up with a message that "your connection is not private". All my visitors who are ending up to my Homepage URL through Google will be seeing no results that is why my website traffic and rankings dropped.
    It would be great if you could please share the screenshot what you see at your end.
    Thank you so much in advance.
    Warm regards
