Lots of reasons exist for moving a site from HTTP to HTTPS: security, a potential Google ranking boost, and soon (with Chrome 62) Chrome will warn users that the site is not secure when they fill out a form (such as a search box or an email signup). That newest alert, coupled with Google SEO benefits has accelerated the migration timeframe for many sites.Numerous detail and checklists exist for the engineering side of things, but sometimes SEO specifics can get overlooked. Below is a HTTP to HTTPS checklist that focuses just on SEO considerations: planning, migration, and post-migration monitoring. (This post doesn’t include all of the non-SEO specific tasks required to migrate from HTTP to HTTPS. It’s intended to augment your existing engineering migration plan, not replace it.)
