    Hi,

    I have built links for over 1 month to my website then i noticed today it ranked BUT with https not http and my website in "https" looks very messy fully of broken images "simply it's shi* in https" , i want to ask some questions in this case:

    1-what is the reason to let google rank https instead of http ? as i built really very good links to http and 0 Bl's for https
    2-couple of days ago it was ranked in http in same place in google "sounds like google changed his idea" ? if yes so according to what !!
    3- is there any solution for example to let https redirect to http one ?

    Please note

    Thanks

    Seems like https is a ranking factor now. They are encouraging encryption and web safety.

    This has literally nothing to do with it.

    OP, have you been fucking around in web master tools/google search console lately?

    You can also fix it with this, set this in your .htaccess file:

    Code:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} on
    RewriteRule (.*) http://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

    Google mention that https will be one of the ranking factors now.

    You enabled both https and http in your sitemap and webmasters, I would recommend you removing and uploading your sitemap again

    Thanks for your reply

    No i didn't anything in my webmaster tool, even i didn't connect my website with my GWT ! BTW i forgot to mention that my website already has very high authority as it was expired domain couple of years ago ! DA 60

    I think i have to wait a week to see how it going on i mean google might change his idea again and get it back
    regards

    What I know https used for secure server,correct me if I am wrong,which is for if one is using videos etc in his website then it would be better.
