In Google's https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6073543, it is stated that the "best practices when implementing HTTPS" recommend that webmasters "use server-side 301 redirects" and to "redirect [their] users and search engines to the HTTPS page or resource with server-side 301 HTTP redirects."
https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6073543

Look at these redirects:


ID.. Initial................. Redirect #1.................... Redirect #2.............. Redirect #3
01.. http://www.google.com... 302->https://www.google.com/... 200...................... 200
02.. https://www.google.com.. 200............................ 200...................... 200
03.. http://google.com....... 301->http://www.google.com/.... https://www.google.com... 200
04.. https://google.com...... 301->https://www.google.com/... 200...................... 200

Based on what most people on this forum and elsewhere would call best practices:

  • #1 should 301 instead of 302
  • #3 should redirect directly to the end URL instead of being passed through a second redirect
But Google doesn't give a fuck about alleged best practices. Not even on their homepage.

Which leads to the questions:

  • Are redirect best practices a hoax developed by the Illuminati?
  • What is Google's reason for ignoring their official best practices?
  • Does any of this actually impact SEO? Or does Google secretly treat 301s and 302s the same in this context?
  • Is God dead?
  • What's the deal with airplane food?

Silly Google not adhering to the Google Webmaster Best Practices Guidelines. Don't they want to rank better in Google?

Look, even Neil Patel's QuickSprout site audit tool says they have 10 errors on their website. You would think someone at Googleplex would notice those 12 errors. Maybe they should hire Neil to fix all 6 of their site errors.

1 is weird you're right but 3 is correct despite what some online tools report.

Not sure they care though as the only people searching for Google are doing it off the browser bar with keyword Google. They'll be alright.

You would think Neil Patel could at least use the domain name as a seed value for his random number generator.

Google has said to treat 302 like 301 if it's run for too long time. As 302 is temporary, it may become permanent (301) if you keep it for long.
