Thread: Correct SSL configuration and 301 redirect

    Correct SSL configuration and 301 redirect


    I just want to post an advice. I had an issue with the SSL plugin and don't want any other flynax user to have it.

    So getting to the point. At this escort domain: 01escorts.com There were
    two major issues.

    First, there were no http to https 301 redirect, so if you use site wide https you lose link juice. This is what i wrote at
    the beggining of the .httaccess file:

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

    This works like a charm and you will not lose any link juice, only if sitewide https. You can check your redirects here: http://www.redirect-checker.org/

    Also, very important, my hosting company made a BIG mistake, they installed in a bad way the SSL certificate so there
    were a big SEO penalty, in order to avoid this, I recommend you to check your SSL certificate through: https://www.sslshopper.com/

    That's all!, I wish you have a nice sitewide SSl so your seo score will improve significantly.

    Hello Santiago,

    It's strange that the plugin doesn't redirect you if you come without HTTPS. Maybe necessary configs are disabled.
