When I registered this website 3 years ago, I submitted it as http to all of the directories, and google and whatnot, but about a year ago I had an https installed. I use WordPress btw. I bought it from GoDaddy and HostGator installed it. 2 issues I may be having with this. 1. Does this hurt my rankings, or if backlinks direct to http, is that http backlink invalid, because it is not https? 2. All IE users get a message popup telling them every thing on my website is not secure, due to the https install. How can I get rid of this? I use a mac, and was completely unaware of this issue until recently. I dont want people just leaving when they see that message.
