    Home Page:
    Google Webmaster Stools does not consider https://www.blackhatworld.com and http://www.blackhatworld.com to be the same site. The search traffic going to https will not show up for your http site.

    If all your search data has gone missing, there's no need to dispair, rip your hair off and break up with your girl just yet.

    You have not necessarily been penalized, mate! Just add your site again using https and check your search traffic, it may still be there!

    Also this may present some black hat ops for the everliving eternal holy glorified 301 follies. If http and https are two different sites, then an opportunity may present itself whereby you could simply ____________ the http version and _________ it so all that juicy link mojo is _______________ which would provide massive improvement for the https version.

    This has been a public service announcement from Barto Simpsonio Corp - Because corporations ARE people my friend.

    [SIGH] If Google paid me for every time I've found bugs in their systems I'd be r....wait....

    Missing words

    - blast
    - redirect
    - transferred
    - rich

    Great idea. I'm gonna try that when I finally get around to testing the impact of ssl on the rankings of sites.
