    I have this product site setup with and SSL and it is on the same server as non-SSL sites. The host only lets the primary domain access the SSL which is why I say that.

    What I've noticed is that Google is indexing some pages of my other sites (on the same server) as https://. These pages link back to the primary domain that is supposed to have SSL, but it pops up a security message in any browser.

    I talked to the host and they say they can't do anything about it besides adding an exception for every single extra site in my htaccess file.

    My question is this... Does this harm SEO for my secondary sites on this server if Google is indexing pages for them in https:// and these pages are actually pages from my primary domain?

    Note: The secondary domains are also getting indexed properly and ranking well, but I'm just curious if this might get me penalized later on.

    Hope that all makes sense.. .its late.
